Finland to Launch ‘National Emojis’ in December
You know that gargantuan bank of 7,000 emoji on your cell phone, 6,990 of which you'll never use (really, who has ever included a tiny pic of celery in a text, ever)? Well it's about to get bigger.
Next month, Finland will launch a collection of Finnish-inspired emojis, including headbanging rockers, old Nokias, and little naked people enjoying some time in the sauna.
KX News reports:
[Petra Theman from the Finnish Foreign Ministry] said Wednesday that emojis suit the character of the traditionally reticent Finns "who only speak when it's necessary."
The unique emojis will be released one-per-day on the Foreign Ministry's website, starting on December 1.
