We’ve gone a bit emoji crazy here at ifour HQ. Since learning today that Finland are the first country to launch its own series of emojis including a Nokia 3310, a head banger listening to rock music and perhaps unsurprisingly a naked couple enjoying a typically Finnish sauna experience.
All of this has got us thinking about what emojis would be representative of our own fair land in digital icon form? We asked Twitter and they shared the following ideas:
Marmite came up a few times
Tea and toast – although I don’t think this is indicative of the UK alone
Ali Parmer suggestions
The mighty Oak tree – good one
Red post box – obv.
Punk rocker – yes another good-un
White-Y-fronts – hhmm if you think so?
The Queen drinking tea… and eating a sausage roll – ermm yes
Bearskin hat – brilliant
English breakfast – definitely thanks Jimmy
Fish & chips – of course it doesn’t get more British than that
Pint of ale – Cheers
British astronaut, Tim Peake – if you say so?
British space adventures – there seems to be a theme here
Cheeky Nando’s – Nom Nom Nom
Watch this space as we are sure that our own iconic emojis will appear soon and maybe they will include some ‘out of the box’ ideas.
