People in Belarus have launched a petition to add the country’s historical white-red-white flag, now associated with the anti-regime opposition, among national flags available as an emoji.

The petition has received over 45,000 signatures, Belsat reported on Monday.

The authors of the initiative are not asking for the current Belarusian green-red flag to be replaced.

After the collection of signatures, the initiators plan to turn to companies including Twitter, Google, and Apple for the white-red-flag to be added to the list of flags available in emoji form.
