Why is a unicode symbol viewing differently on mobile (iPhone)?

I am using a unicode star symbol on my website in a couple of scroll bars and in the copy. It views perfectly on my desktop but on my iPhone the symbol changes to a star in an orange box. Any idea how I stop this from happening please?

Thank you!

I believe that this is just a product of using unicode, the characters get interpreted differently on different systems, just like emojis do on different phones.
