A Frisbee Emoji Is Finally Here

Apple’s ‘flying disc’ emoji

It’s been a long time coming: a frisbee emoji is now live on the latest version of Apple’s iOS (12.1 is available for download today) and Android 9.0!

The ‘flying disc’ emoji was shortlisted for inclusion in the latest version of Unicode last summer and got approved for Unicode 11.0 in June. While many devices don’t yet support the new emoji, it should be rolling out everywhere very soon.

The original proposal for the creation of a flying disc emoji was submitted in late 2016 by Devin Bayer. He was specific: “The emoji should represent a spinning, flying disc with the approximate specification of the USA Ultimate (USAU) Disc Technical Standard, which specifies the official size and weight of USAU and the WFDF approved discs.”

Here’s how the emoji will look across platforms, via Emojipedia:
