Related petition appeared on the website change.org. At the time of publication it was signed by only 10 people, but in the news groups, DNR has published a link to a petition to circulate among friends.
“We, the people of the Donetsk people’s Republic, we ask the creators of the largest smartphone OS to add the flag of our country in the Emoji keyboard. DNR flag is a symbol of our state”, – stated in the message of the authors of the petition.
The initiators were asked to pay attention to the fact that the Emoji keyboard is actually several flags of unrecognized States.
“For example, there is a flag of the Palestinian territories – state remained unrecognized. And also, for example, the flag of Cyprus is not recognized by Turkey or the flag of Israel, unrecognized by twenty Arab States,” they say.
