They inserted an emoji in their business title. An emoji is just an another keyboard character and can be inserted easily using an emoji keyboard. 

 

It is against Google Guidelines and sooner or later the icon will be removed (sooner if someone reports the business name as erroneous).

 

Guidelines here: https://support.google.com/business/answer/3038177?hl=en

Including unnecessary information in your business name is not permitted, and could result in your listing being suspended. Refer to the specific examples below to determine what you can and cannot include in your business name.

 

Your name must not include Special characters (e.g. %&$@/") or irrelevant legal terms unless they are part of your business’s real world representation

Is this true? There are web dev companies advertising that they can get a trophy on your listing. Is there some way to qualify for the trophy? Or is it really just an emoji?
