Miscellaneous Symbols and Pictographs

Miscellaneous Symbols and Pictographs is a Unicode block containing meteorological and astronomical symbols along with Emoji characters largely for compatibility with Japanese telephone carriers' implementations of Shift JIS.

The most extraordinary sets include the following topics:

  • weather and landscape — not just clouds and sun, but whole sceneries and various natural phenomena, like volcanic eruption, flood, and rainbow.
  • accommodation — so far this category has only a plate with a fork and a knife. by the way, the plate is empty.
  • beverage and food — an astonishing combination of champagne and popcorn.
  • fairytale — a perfect set of symbols for a fantasy-writer. here you can find a ghost, an ogre, a goblin, an alien, and even an angel.
  • romance — these symbols are especially popular on the 14th of February and in wedding invitations.
  • comic style — somehow, apart from bubbles, explosion (boom!) and superpower, this set contains the image of poo.
  • communication — all types of connection, from bugle to smartphone.
  • rating symbols — don't repeat at home.
