Introduced in 2010, the oil drum emoji is one of those emojis which seems to confuse a lot of people! Unless you’re in the know, the emoji which shows a metallic or plastic sealed tube with a hole on its top may not be immediately identifiable as an oil drum, but that is what it is! Depending on the platform or version used, the drum is red, blue, grey or black, and has concentric ridges and grooves across its surface. In combination with other emojis – such as an engineer or factory worker emoji – it is used by people in the oil and gas industry to show that they are at or are going to work. More generally, though, it’s used to show a situation is volatile, and could go up in flames with provocation!
