A tear-off calendar, featuring a single day, with ring-binders across the top for changing dates. Not to be confused with the Calendar emoji which does not feature ring binders.
The date displays July 17 on most versions on this emoji. This is the date that iCal for Mac was first announced at MacWorld Expo in 2002 and now also World Emoji Day.
Dates on the calendar emoji are displayed as follows:
Google’s Android version of this emoji previously showed the number 12. It is not clear what significance of this date was.
Microsoft and Samsung both display the number 31, which implies that the month must be January, March, May, July, August, October, or December.
Facebook Messenger uses August 9 on this emoji, which is the launch date of the Messenger app for iOS and Android.
Twitter previously showed July 15 on this emoji — Twitter’s launch date — but changed this to March 21 which is Twitter's founding date. The reason stated was to "avoid confusion" with a date so close to July 17, but not the same.
Tear-Off Calendar was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
