Python - insert unicode character to string

In this article, we would like to show you how to insert unicode character to string in Python.

There are three different ways how to do it:

  • with escape character e.g. \u03c0 that is equal to π,
  • by pasting character directly to string,
  • by converting codes to a string.

Quick solution:

text = "π or \u03c0"  # U+03C0
print(text)  # π or π

Output:

π or π

 

More complicated example

Space is represented by 0x20 (in hex) or 32 (in dec). It is necessary to add 2 additional zeros before code (e.g. \u0020).

text = "π and \u03c0 are\u0020equal"  # U+03C0 U+0020
print(text)                           # π and π are equal

Output:

π and π are equal

Directly pasted emojis

In this section you can find some emojis that we pasted directly to the string and received e.g \U0001F34F for the 🍏 (green apple emoji).

apple = "\U0001F34F"
banana = "\U0001F34C"
cherry = "\U0001F352"

print(apple)
print(banana)
print(cherry)

Output:

🍏
🍌
🍒
