Stars are huge celestial bodies that emit light and heat and are mostly composed of hydrogen and helium. Due to the fact that stars can be seen with the naked eye at night and appear as fixed points of light in the sky, they have always been fascinating to mankind since time immemorial.


Stars usually symbolize positive messages and metaphors, such as hope, guidance, and protection. However, some specific representations may also represent magic and superstition. 


Regardless of what the stars represent, we can use them as both text symbols and emojis on our Android phones.
