The Unicode Consortium, a nonprofit organization responsible for setting the global standard for emoji, has announced a new set of characters. There are 157 new pictorial representations that we all desperately needed to express ourselves, like a kangaroo and a pilot flag. The emojis now also include a full set of characters for redheads and a set of characters for people with no hair at all. The characters are expected to be available for use as of June.
