Finland Finally Gets Its Sauna Emoji

Its woolly socks emoji idea was rejected

Finland will be represented on smartphones by an emoji of a naked character in a steamy sauna. The new emoji was revealed at the Unicode Consortium last week, alongside others such as a character in a hijab, someone in a lotus position and a breast-feeding woman. Saunas are extremely popular in Finland; the country has 3 million saunas for its 5 million inhabitants. The country also proposed woolly socks to represent its country, but this idea was rejected.
