Steps to reproduce
Unicode Characters ‘Black Left-pointing Triangle’ (U+25C0) and ‘Black Right-pointing Triangle’ (U+25B6) are displayed in blue. You can see this in action at my site at e.g. https://www.irhb.org/wiki/index.php/Good_even,_good_Robin_Hood . If you scroll to the bottom you will notice that the left- and right-pointing arrows (but not the up-pointing one) in the green navigation links have a strange blue background with a black border. This is not the case in Internet Explorer 11 or the latest versions of other well-known browsers. I attach a screenshot and a minimal test case type of html document to demonstrate that this is not an issue related to my site.

This is a duplicate issue and has a bit of history.
Originally, there was a “bug” or feature request, depending on your point of view, to have the behavior you are seeing. I will give you a couple links and a workaround.
Quoting from the following link:
"With the release Windows 10, the Segoe MDL2 Assets font replaced the Windows 8/8.1 Segoe UI Symbol icon font.
Segoe UI Symbol
will still be available as a “legacy” resource".
I also created a codepen to show the workaround and a screenshot. :)
