The "V inside a circle symbol" has been adopted by proud vegans as a vegan icon appended to usernames and profiles on social networks and message boards, or as sort of a vegan emoji (for a true emoji scroll down) in texts or posts. Non-vegans alike also make use of it as a footnote symbol to mark something as vegan, for example a menu item or ingredient, however in such cases it's important to make sure it's footnote description is listed as Vegan not just Vegetarian. It would be innacurate to call it a Vegan Font, the symbol is a Unicode character, Unicode is subset of Ascii, it is is public domain / free of any trademarks.
Try the following methods to incorporate the V Vegan Symbol into your profiles, posts or websites or other projects. Twitter accepts the Ⓥ symbol as part of your bio and display name but not your actual twitter handle (@username). Facebook appears to no longer accept Ⓥ as part your facebook name nor a custom facebook URL. Youtube will accept Ⓥ in video titles but it will convert it to a regular V if you include it in your display name. Instagram will allow it in display names, bios and photo descriptions.
The "seedling emjoi" is to date the most popular emoji
used to represent veganism or vegan items, for the same reason a leaf or leaves are classicly incorporated into vegan marks and logos.
The seedling emoji is also used to represent growing, seeding, nature, herbs, gardening, eco-friendly, among others so be aware it does not necessarily mean "vegan".
It's important to know that this emjoi has a number of platform to platform variations (the image you see is not universally displayed the same). Different operating systems, browsers and social networks have their own versions of the emoji and the image may look one way to you but another way to someone else.
Be aware that emojis can be copyrighted by their respective creators and likely they are. If you want to use one of the above images in commercial work, you should check with the company that made it. For example EmojiOne
