Note: One character from the Enclosed CJK Letters and Months block was merged with an existing character in the CJK Symbols and Punctuation block in version 1.0.1 during the process of unifying with ISO 10646.[1][2][3]

Enclosed CJK Letters and Months is a Unicode block containing circled and parenthesized Katakana, Hangul, and CJK ideographs. During the unification with ISO 10646 for version 1.1, the Japanese Industrial Standard Symbol was reassigned from the code point U+32FF at the end of the block to U+3004. Also included in the block are miscellaneous glyphs that would more likely fit in CJK Compatibility or Enclosed Alphanumerics: a few unit abbreviations, circled numbers from 21 to 50, and circled multiples of 10 from 10 to 80 enclosed in black squares (representing speed limit signs).

Emoji[edit]

The Enclosed CJK Letters and Months block contains two emoji: U+3297 and U+3299.[4][5]

The block has four standardized variants defined to specify emoji-style (U+FE0F VS16) or text presentation (U+FE0E VS15) for the two emoji, both of which default to a text presentation.[6]
