Thanks for the great talk, @naeohmi ! What is the process like to get make an emoji "official"? Is it hard to do, and are there any big requirements to keep in mind? Also: I LOVE YOUR SLIDES!!!

Thanks so much! 😊 The current process is pretty intensive and can take years to get through, so yes I would say it's not really easy to do.

There's a great documentary that helps to answer this question on youtube that I highly recommend, in goes in depth on how the Trans flag emoji was added!

Also here's the official Unicode documentation on the full process! And some more info from emojipedia on emoji proposals 🎉
