The Importance of Emoji Literacy

Emojis can convey emotions, ideas, and even complex thoughts in a simple and efficient manner. They help bridge language barriers and add a personal touch to digital communication. However, misunderstanding or misusing emojis can lead to miscommunication or even offense.

Tips for Decoding Emojis
  • Consider the context: Look at the surrounding text or conversation to help determine the meaning of an emoji.
  • Check for cultural differences: Some emojis may have different meanings or connotations in different cultures. Be aware of these variations to avoid misunderstandings.
  • Look for patterns: Emojis are often used in combination to create more complex messages. Try to decipher the overall meaning of a series of emojis, rather than focusing on each individual icon.

The only flag of the world that is shredded by design

If you have played Kobadoo Flags you might have seen some extravagant flags with colourful designs, but you might not have seen before a flag made of separate strips of cloth. This is the case of the flag of Zamora , a beautiful province in the North West of Spain close to the border with Portugal. This flag is not only truly original, but as well one of the oldest in the world. It is composed of a green strip and eight red strips , all of them detached from each other. The red ones represent the eight victories obtained by the legendary warrior Viriathus against the Romans in the 2nd century BC. The green strip was a reward from King Ferdinand II of Aragon  in recognition of the aid provided in the battle of Toro in 1476. Source: common.wikimedia.org

The world's only non-rectangular national flag

There are no written rules about what a national flag should look like. That is why we can observe truly original designs with different number of stripes, colours and additional elements. However, all of them share one characteristic: they have a rectangular shape . Well, actually not all of them. There is a sovereign country whose flag doesn't follow the pattern: Nepal . If you have played Kobadoo Flags before you are probably familiar with it. This beautiful flag is a combination of two pennons used in the past by rival branches of the ruling dynasty . The red colour is a  symbol of bravery  of Nepali people and it is also the colour of Nepal's national flower: rhododendron . The blue border represents   peace and   harmony. The crescent moon on the top pennon symbolizes the coldness near Himalayas and the pure spirit of Nepali people; whereas the sun represents the heat of the southern provinces and the  fierceness of the locals.

These 6 country pairs are twins by flag

These flags of the world are a nightmare for any  Kobadoo   player . Although not two flags of sovereign countries that are exactly the same, they might just differ slightly in colour shades. This is the case of Chad and Romania , where the blue tone of Chad's flag is a bit deeper. These similarities were the cause of an alleged dispute between the two countries in 2004. Moldova and Andorra share the same three colours, but they have a differentiating coat of arms in the center. Monaco and Indonesia have different tones of red and dimension ratios. The flag of Poland has the same horizontal stripes, but reversed. You have to be very observant to notice the difference between the flags of Ivory Coast and Ireland . These two former British colonies display the Union Jack and similar blue shades. Australia 's flag contains the Commonwealth Star and five more white stars, while New Zealand 's flag has only four red stars. It might be a bit easier to distinguish the
