lion 🦁

It’s time for the big cats featuring the Lion emoji! The lion emoji, also known as the lion face emoji, features the animal with its mane. The lion is generally depicted in a cartoonish fashion with two large black eyes and a snout.

This emoji usually has itself wrapped in brown fur. The exception lies with WhatsApp, Samsung, and Apple, which feature the lion in orange brown fur. It originally featured the lion with a timid expression, but was revamped to look the way it does now.

Users of emoji often associate the lion emoji with Lion King: Disney’s adaptation of Hamlet in the form of Africa’s wildlife. Using the emoji alongside a Musical Note emoji implies the theatrical version of the Lion King, which is world famous for its stunning performance and visual display. You may also use the lion alongside the Ghost emoji, which implies Snapchat and its set of Lion King filters.

Other uses of this emoji can refer to the actual lions themselves. Placing them with other wildlife emojis, such as the Panda emoji or the Monkey emoji, would imply that you’re going on a trip to the zoo.

It is also a good way to promote the safety of lions and their pack in the wild. Lions have been known to be hunted down for sport, using this emoji alongside the Prohibited emoji and the Water Pistol emoji implies that you are against such violence.

🦁 Lion is a fully-qualified emoji as part of Unicode 8.0 which was introduced in 2015.
