Have you ever wished you could represent Quebec in emoji form? If yes, you’ll be happy to know that the leader of the Parti Québécois is asking for just that!

Paul St-Pierre Plamondon announced on Twitter Wednesday that his party planned to table a motion in the National Assembly to request the Unicode Consortium to add a Quebec flag emoji.

In case you didn’t know, the Unicode Consortium governs computer language and oversees permitting which objects can be transformed into digital emojis.

"I will also send a letter to Facebook Headquarters asking them to add this emoticon," the leader wrote on Twitter. "A small gesture, a great symbolism: that it's our right to express our pride."

However, as many people have pointed out on Twitter, his request won’t do much since according to the Unicode Consortium, a request to add the Quebec flag emoji was submitted in September 2019 and is currently “under consideration.”
