Emoji Version 5.0


Version 5.0 was released on ๐Ÿ May 18, 2017 and contained 239 new emojis. On ๐ŸŒˆ June 20, 2017, Unicode added an encoding for 56 new emojis.

For the first time in Version 5.0, the emoji of fairy-tale creatures, such as ๐Ÿงš Fairies, ๐Ÿง Elves, ๐Ÿงž Genies and others, were added. But not all mythical creatures received the support of skin tone, but only those characters who are considered as people, for example magicians. The genies, in turn, didnโ€™t receive support for changing skin tones, since they are magical creatures. Also in the new version flags of ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ England, ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ Scotland and South Wales appeared.
