The Unicode for ⬛ is U+2B1B. The important part is the hexadecimal number after the U+, which is used in various formats. For example, in Microsoft Office applications (e.g. Word, PowerPoint), do the following:
[Hold down Alt]
[Press x]

(Note that you can omit any leading zeros.)
In JavaScript, the syntax is \uXXXX. So, our example would be \2B1B. (Note that the format is 4 hexadecimal characters.)
JavaScript TextOutput
let str = "\u2B1B"
document.write("My symbol: " + str)
My symbol: ⬛

(Method 8) Use the Hex Code for HTML 5 Canvas.

On the assumption that you already have your canvas and the context set up, use the Hex code in the format 0x2B1B to place the ⬛ emoji on your canvas. For example:
JavaScript Text
const x = "0x"+"2B1B"
ctx.fillText(String.fromCodePoint(x), 5, 5);
