Insert the Tower 🗼 (Eiffel Tower, Tokyo Tower) emoji, symbol or stock photo into Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint or Outlook. Both in Office for Windows and Office for Mac.
The emoji is commonly called ‘Eiffel Tower’ in the west but it was originally intended to show the Tokyo Tower. That’s why some emoji are colored orange. Some versions of the emoji can pass for the Eiffel Tower 🗼 called Tour Eiffel in French while Parisiens may use the nickname La dame de fer (Iron Lady).
How Eiffel Tower 🗼 looks in different fonts.
In Windows the tower emoji is only available in Segoe UI Emoji and Segoe UI Symbol.
On a Mac, the Apple Color Emoji font version looks more like Tokyo Tower.
