In honor of Finland recently legalizing same-sex marriage, the country has issued the daddy of all emojis. 

Finland, the first country to create its own set of emojis, is at it again and this time they're taking you on a ride. A mustache ride. Introducing the Tom of Finland emoji, for your texting and sexting pleasure.

The ToF comes just ahead of marriage equality officially becoming the law of the Finland on March 1, and with a new movie chronicling the life of its most famous citizen.

"We've kept our tongue-in-cheek approach," Director for Public Diplomacy at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs Petra Theman said in a press release. "However, the emojis still clearly convey what Finland feels is important: biodiversity and natural coexistence--coexistence with the challenges of our environment and also harmonious coexistence with each other."

Scandanavia just gets it. You can download the Tom of Finland and 55 other official Finland emojis here. My personal favorite (besides whatever the hell this is)? The naked sauna emoji--which hopefully includes a same-sex option.


Turns out in a country of 5.4 million people, there are 3.2 million saunas. The More You Know(tm).


That's the Finnish version of a shooting star--the Aurora Borealis.
