๐Ÿงง Red Envelope

A red envelope given with money in many Chinese or other East Asian and Southeast Asian traditions, particularly for Chinese New Year. Red, usually with decorative gold words or patterns on the outside.

Most platforms display ็ฆ on the outside of the envelope, which means good luck or fortune. The same character upside down means good luck arrives.

Red Envelope was approved as part of Unicode 11.0 in 2018 under the name โ€œRed Gift Envelopeโ€ and added to Emoji 11.0 in 2018.
