Issue with unichar


I'm having a really weird issue when i try to return a unichar character from an if-function or a switch.
I recreated the problem in a new powerbi report.

I want to return  when the value equals 1, and  when it doesn't.
So i tried this first, which seems to be working fine:

When i substitute blank by the unichar code for , it doesn't work anymore:
unichar 2.png

Neither does switch:

Did anybody else run in to this problem before?
