No. Inserting and extracting characters like this should be no problem,
*if* they are properly encoded.

The database doesn't expose its encoding IIRC, only its character set. So
it's possible that that should be Unicode, not UTF-8.
But how did you specify this special character in your C++ source file?
Because if you typed it in directly as a non-ASCII character, it's quite
possible that your editor and your compiler disagree on encoding. Or that
the compiler uses an encoding that does not happen to match the client
