Julia Circles Unicode Emoji

I wanted the julia circles logo for my personal website. Although this is possible to draw and include it as a picture, I wondered if there was a unicode character that I could use. It seems there is none.

Interestingly, in various platforms like Notion, I’ve adopted the snake emoji :snake: to symbolize Python. Recently, I’ve been contemplating an appropriate emoji for Julia.

abacus could be misinterpreted perhaps


I like the :person_juggling: one, even if the discourse one is not as nice and clean as others 🤹 Person Juggling Emoji

I think Discourse shows you the Twitter emoji set, not the Apple/Google/Microsoft ones. Emojis are not always very good for communicating clearly… :slight_smile:
