Enclosed Alphanumeric Supplement is a Unicode block consisting Latin alphabet characters and Hindu-Arabic numerals enclosed in circles, ovals or boxes, used for a variety of purposes. It is encoded in the range U+1F100โ€“U+1F1FF in the Supplementary Multilingual Plane.

The block is mostly an extension of the Enclosed Alphanumerics block. Most of the characters are single alphanumerics in boxes or circles, or with trailing commas. Two of the symbols are identified as dingbats. A number of multiple-letter enclosed abbreviations are also included, mostly to provide compatibility with Broadcast Markup Language standards. The block also includes the regional indicator symbols to be used for emoji country flag support.

Emoji[edit]

The Enclosed Alphanumeric Supplement block contains 41 emoji: U+1F170โ€“U+1F171, U+1F17Eโ€“U+1F17F, U+1F18E, U+1F191โ€“U+1F19A and U+1F1E6โ€“U+1F1FF.[3][4]

The block has eight standardized variants defined to specify emoji-style (U+FE0F VS16) or text presentation (U+FE0E VS15) for the following four base characters: U+1F170โ€“U+1F171 and U+1F17Eโ€“U+1F17F.[5]

All of these base characters default to a text presentation.
