coffin ⚰️

The Coffin emoji is an image of the less frequently-used coffin with six sides. It comes in the color brown with yellow handles that could be made of gold. On some platforms, it has flowers resting on top of the lid. Generally, a coffin is a box made of wood used to contain a dead body that is yet to be buried or cremated. The coffin emoji meaning includes ideas or expressions related to death, dying, or perhaps someone who has passed on.

Since six-sided coffins nowadays are no longer used and were more popular in the olden days, the coffin emoji is likely associated with movies or things of the horror genre such as zombies, vampires, thrillers, or Halloween. This emoji is also the closest that you can use as a R.I.P. emoji, along with the headstone or tombstone emoji (also called the grave emoji).

That said, it may only be appropriate to use the coffin emoji in casual scenarios as compared to formal ones, since it may be mixed with meanings from the horror genre. It is completely up to you when or where to use it, although do craft a thoughtfully and carefully written message because using it in the context of an actual funeral may be tricky. You may want to make sure that in such scenarios, your text is sincere or heartfelt.

Otherwise, if you’re just messaging friends and exaggerating the thought of dying or probably hinting at what you’re going to wear for Halloween, then by all means the coffin emoji is the one to use!

⚰️ Coffin is a fully-qualified emoji as part of Unicode 4.1 which was introduced in 2005, and was added to Emoji 1.0.
