More than 1,100 people have signed an online petition, to Apple, Samsung and Microsoft, calling for software manufacturers to create a text “emoji” of the TRNC flag.
The petition, on www.change.org, was started up by Salih Yamansef with a target of 1,500 signatures. His petition says: “The emoji board has most of the flags for every country. Republic of Cyprus has a flag emoji, but the Turkish Republic of [Northern] Cyprus doesn’t, as a Turkish Cypriot myself and many other Turkish Cypriots out there, we have to use the Turkey and Republic of Cyprus emoji flags to show that we’re Turkish Cypriots. Since Google Maps and even Snapchat Maps recognises this country why can’t Apple and many other phone companies? I know this may seem unnecessary but this will be a big step for the recognition of TRNC globally.”
