Is it possible to use ★ as a search item?

I just started identifying top projects by prefixing them with the ★ character. It looks nice to me, and it makes the project stand out.

I want to search for all projects with that character in it. I want to get this type of result:

But if I put ★ in the search field, nothing comes up.

What am I missing?

With more exotic unicode characters
(this is decimal code point 9733, I think – hex 2605)
we can write things like:

//contains "★"

or for a regex match on the hexadecimal representation of the code point

//matches \u2605

and we can abbreviate to:


Thank you @complexpoint !

Ending up using:

// "★"//not @done

I love it!
