Meaning emoji «Tanabata Tree»

The Tanabata Tree emoji 🎋 depicts a bamboo tree with strips of paper attached to its branches, often with Japanese characters or drawings. This tree is traditionally associated with the Japanese festival of Tanabata, which is celebrated on July 7th. The festival originated from the Chinese Qixi Festival and celebrates the meeting of two mythical lovers, Orihime (represented by the star Vega) and Hikoboshi (represented by the star Altair), who are separated by the Milky Way for most of the year.

The Tanabata Festival is celebrated throughout Japan and involves the decoration of bamboo trees with colorful paper ornaments, including tanzaku (strips of paper) on which people write their wishes. The Tanabata Tree emoji is often used to represent this festival and its associated traditions.

In addition to its cultural and historical significance, the Tanabata Tree emoji is also used more generally to represent bamboo trees, which are common throughout many parts of Asia and are used in a variety of ways, from construction materials to food.

The Tanabata Tree emoji was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 and has since become popular on social media platforms such as Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, where it is often used in posts related to the Tanabata Festival or to represent bamboo trees and their cultural significance.
