Without tikz

\documentclass{article}
%\usepackage{dingbat}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{graphicx,xcolor}

\newcommand\circledmark[1][red]{%
  \ooalign{%
    \hidewidth
    \kern0.65ex\raisebox{-0.9ex}{\scalebox{3}{\textcolor{#1}{\textbullet}}}
    \hidewidth\cr
    $\checkmark$\cr
  }%
}

\newcommand\circled[1][red]{%
    \raisebox{-0.9ex}{\scalebox{3}{\textcolor{#1}{\textbullet}}}
  }%

\begin{document}

This is circled \circledmark\quad\circledmark[cyan] and filled \circled[cyan]

\end{document}

One option:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amssymb}

\begin{document}

\textcircled{$\checkmark$}

\end{document}

enter image description here

Or, with color:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{xcolor}

\newcommand\circledmark[1][red]{%
\textcolor{#1}{\textcircled{\normalcolor$\checkmark$}}%
}

\begin{document}

\circledmark\quad\circledmark[cyan]

\end{document}

enter image description here

suppress \normalcolor if the color is also for the checkmark.

Or, using TikZ and a filled circle, two options:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{tikz}

\newcommand\circledmark[1][red!50]{%
  \tikz\node[circle,fill=#1,inner sep=0pt]{$\checkmark$};%
}

\newcommand\circledmarki[1][red!50]{%
  \tikz[baseline=(A.south)]{
    \node[circle,fill=#1,inner sep=0.75ex] (A) {};
    \node at (A) {$\checkmark$};
  }%  
}

\begin{document}

\circledmark\quad\circledmark[cyan!60]\quad\circledmarki\quad\circledmarki[cyan!60]

\end{document}

enter image description here

And, after a request in a comment:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{tikz}

\newcommand\circledmark[1][red!50]{%
  \tikz\node[circle,fill=#1,inner sep=0pt]{$\checkmark$};%
}

\newcommand\circledmarki[1][red!50]{%
  \tikz[baseline=(A.south)]{
    \node[circle,fill=#1,inner sep=0.75ex] (A) {};
    \node at (A) {$\checkmark$};
  }%  
}

\newcommand\mycircle[1][red!50]{%
  \tikz[baseline=(A.south)]{
    \node[circle,fill=#1,inner sep=0.75ex] {};
  }%  
}

\begin{document}

\circledmark\quad\circledmark[cyan!60]\quad
\circledmarki\mycircle\quad\circledmarki[cyan!60]\mycircle[cyan!60]

\end{document}

  • Great! but i need the same but filled circle and enclosing checkbox fully. – manish Jul 31 '14 at 2:25
  • @manish please see my updated answer. – Gonzalo Medina Jul 31 '14 at 2:27
  • Nice! We should remember that we can use light colors: cyan!40 for example. – Sigur Jul 31 '14 at 2:31
  • @Sigur good suggestion. I'veincorporated it to my answer. – Gonzalo Medina Jul 31 '14 at 2:33
  • @GonzaloMedina Thanks for quick reply can i draw one circle with no tick mark inside. I mean 2 circles side by side one with tick mark and other without. – manish Jul 31 '14 at 2:35
