๐Ÿ“† Tear-Off Calendar

A single date on a calendar. Generally depicted as a page on a two-ringed, daily desk calendar, as flipped or torn off to change the date. Displays month (usually abbreviated and in a red or blue header) and day on a white, square page, curled up at the bottom right.

Like ๐Ÿ“… Calendar and ๐Ÿ—“๏ธ Spiral Calendar, commonly used as an icon for specific upcoming events or memorial dates. Also used for various content concerning time, date, schedules, planning, and observances and occasions more generally.

Apple, Google, Samsung, and JoyPixels's dates show July 17. Apple first featured this date in reference to its calendar app on July 17, 2002; originally known as iCal, the app's icon also displays July 17. Emojipedia so chose July 17 as the date for World Emoji Day, first celebrated in 2014. Several major platforms, including Google and Samsung, have since featured July 17 in honor of the occasion.
