According to this article Finland is the first country to use emojis as part of its country brand:
Two of the emojis, sauna and woolly socks, have been accepted by the Unicode Consortium for inclusion in the Unicode Standard. This meant that the emojis will appear in the emoji keypads of all devices, and they will be available for use within the text of text messages and on all social media channels.
Finland became the first country in the world to publish its own national emojis in December 2015. There are currently 49 Finland emojis in the collection.
This is a very interesting and modern way of promoting the country and I am wondering if there is any other countries that decided to use a similar approach.
Question: Are there any countries besides Finland that use official emojis to promote themselves?
