“To mark the occasion, Twitter has released 207 brand new team emojis so that fans across the globe can share their passion and follow their favourite teams.

“Tweeting with the three-letter country code hashtags will trigger flag emojis for each of the countries, including the Refugee Olympic Team [#ROT].​ While the country flags and sport icons make up most of the emojis, there are more general hashtags that go along with the Olympic Games, medals and the ceremonies.”
