Is it possible to get a regex that select the table flip characters?

I'm looking to select the Table flip characters using regex

(╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

^ this guy

so far the regex I have come up with was

(?i)\b(╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻\b

But it doesn't work. Any guidance would be appreciated.

This is really just Wiktor Stribiżew's comment, in answer form, with example code:

var flipper = '(╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻';
var pattern = /\(╯°□°\)╯︵ ┻━┻/;


The word boundaries (\b) caused your regex to fail because the flipper includes characters that are not word (A-Za-z0-9_) characters.
