We want representation of the Pan African flag across all platforms.

The people of the African diaspora need representation across all platforms. This includes and is non exclusive to the need of an emoji. We want representation of the Pan African flag which consists of three equal horizontal stripes of red, black and green, which represents the history.

The flag was created in 1920 by the members of the UNIA in response to the enormously popular 1900 coon song "Every Race Has a Flag but the Coon" which has been cited as one of the three coon songs that "firmly established the term coon".

The children of today are born into technology, they read, write, play games and spend hours on social media unable to find an emoji that they identify with/as.

This must be an inside joke or an outright ridicule of the millions of black people around the world to continuously introduce new ways of representing various other subcultures, people and systematically overlooking a large demographic of people who have remained silent for too long.

We are in a digital era, where everyone is using emojis to communicate. We feel in the midst of recent updates to the emojis by the Unicode Consortium, yet again we have failed to be represented by Apple, Samsung and Google. We have had to take it upon ourselves to bring to your attention and we will not stop until we have correct and accurate representation of our culture, our history and who we are as black people. We want a Pan African emoji flag to represent our people no matter which corner of the world they reside in.
