The Welsh flag emoji has finally arrived on iPhones in the latest update, ahead of the new iPhone X release.

It means no more copy and pasting Welsh flags from websites for users. Only those who have updated their phone can send and receive the emoji, otherwise it appears as a black flag.

70 New Emojis

The iOS 11.1 update includes 70 new emojis including more expressive smiley faces, mermaids, a breastfeeding mother, pregnant woman and a gender neutral child are other significant new characters

The Wales Flag is available after a long running campaign to introduce it after Apple released a number on new flag emojis but left out Wales.
