There's are more stars availble in unicode than could possibly be considered useful. Here the stars have been seperated into groups based on their meanings and history.

Classic Dingbats Stars

This set of stars we're designed in 1977 by Hermann Zapf as part of a set of over 1000 symbols called Zapf Dingbats. If you we're using computers in th 90s you might remember or the windows equivalent Wingdings.

Chicago Flag Stars

πŸ’« β€” the dizzy symbol is often mistaken for a shooting star. It originates from comics and cartoons, where stars swirling around a character's head denote confusion of drunkedness.


A pentagram or pentacle is a five pointed star drawn with a single continuous line. Pentagrams mean different things to different people. They're used by Christians, Taoists, Wiccans, Satanists, the devil, and Avril Lavigne.

Warning β€” Pentagrams don't render correctly on all devices.

Eastern Star Symbol ⛧

The inverted pentagram is the symbol for the Order of the Eastern Star, an organisation for the female family members of masons. A kind of masons-lite.

Religious Stars

Many Religions and Sects use stars in their symbols. Here you can copy and paste the Star of David, and the star and crescent moon.

The Star and Cresent Moon β˜ͺ is most well known as the symbol of Islam, but it dates back all the way to ancient egypt and probably before.

More Geometric Star Shapes

Similar to the stars from zapf dingbats or webdings. These were added to unicode simply to extend the the number of availble stars. Adding options for weights and pointy-ness, including three and twelve pointed stars.

Warning β€” while these shapes are fun β€” they don't show up on all devices, excercise caution.

Stars for Math and Coding

Stars are rarely but sometimes used in mathematics and code. However, in the interests of preventing boredom we'll just leave it at that.

Half Star Symbols

While unicode have designated code points for half-stars, and having half stars would be extremely useful. There are very few situations where these half stars will render.

Since half-stars won't render correctly. Consider commiting to whole stars scores when reviewing this website, we recommend β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… or β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜† at the bare minimum.

Other Stars

There are over 130,000 unicode points so it's not surprising that a lot of them resemble stars. So, whenever I find a star shaped one, I'll put it here.
