  • How is this related to User Experience? – Swapnil Borkar Sep 22 '15 at 5:07
  • What you are asking is related to Implementation rather than User-Experience. – Swapnil Borkar Sep 22 '15 at 5:17

That is a unicode character, many, but not all of which are allowed in URLs.

🌐 is U+1F310

They could also have put

🌎U+1F30E 🌍U+1F30D 🌏U+1F30F

or any other unicode character in their URLs.

Lots of detail here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/2742852/unicode-characters-in-urls

  • Only U+1F30F actually shows for me. – 51426 Jan 25 at 21:40
