White Chess Rook

The ♖ "White Chess Rook" emoji looks like a classic ancient tower made of stone, topped with non-sharp cogs. The symbol became part of Unicode in 1993 when it appeared in version 1.1, and is placed in the chess group of the Miscellaneous Symbols category.

The emoji does not have an official version. It is therefore displayed in a realistic format only on highly compatible devices. On other platforms, the symbol appears as a black and white monochrome picture and is not recommended by Unicode for general use.

Meaning of ♖ White Chess Rook

The rook, one of the six types of pieces in tabletop chess, is presented as an emoji. The rook moves vertically and horizontally to any number of empty squares and can capture an opponent's objects, taking up the space vacated.

Each player has two rooks at the start. Each piece is valued at 5 ♟️ Pawns, and both are simultaneously considered more powerful than the ♕ Queen. Together with the ♔ King, the rook participates in castling, becomes stronger towards the end of the game and can checkmate itself.
