How it started: How it’s going: https://t.co/z3lQMb3gQj— Sugar Sammy (@Sugar Sammy) 1622123947.0
Sugar Sammy posted a side-by-side photo of the PQ's first official win with founder René Levesque in 1976 and compared it to modern-day PQ politics, with PQ leader Paul St-Pierre Plamondon announcing a motion for the flag emoji via Twitter.
PQ leader Paul St-Pierre Plamondon said a Quebec flag emoji and Facebook emoticon would be a "symbolic gesture of [Quebec's] right to express its pride."
The Unicode Consortium website — which is the organization responsible for creating emojis — shows that a request by the Quebec government for a flag emoji, submitted on September 12, 2019, is currently "under consideration."
