Today is the day gingers have longed for since the advent of emoji.

More than 150 new icons are rolling out Tuesday as part of Unicode’s 11.0 update—including redheads.

The latest set of symbols also features greying and curly hair, as well as bald heads, in an effort to represent more manes (or lack thereof).

Initially announced in February, these 157 additions are available now. But it is ultimately up to individual companies to integrate the emoji into their software.

(FYI: I just updated my iPhone to iOS 11.4, and there are no safety pins, jigsaw pieces, firecrackers, or salt shakers as far as I can see. Though Apple did just announce Memoji, “a more personal form of Animoji,” coming this fall as part of iOS 12.)

Aside from justice for gingers, mobile users will find hot and cold faces; superheroes and supervillains (of both sexes); a llama, hippopotamus, peacock, and parrot; a mango; a chess pawn; and a pirate flag.

The Unicode Consortium, meanwhile, has put an emphasis on Asian culture, with pictures of mooncake, a Chinese baked-good traditionally eaten during the Mid-Autumn Festival; a red envelope, which typically signifies a monetary gift given during the holidays or special occasions; and the Nazar eye-shaped amulet, believed to protect against the evil eye.

There is also a distinct nod to science and math, with images of a lab coat, microbe, test tube, petri dish, right-handed DNA, and an abacus.

It is still not clear whether Unicode has fulfilled a long-time request that users be able to change emoji direction—a feature that would affect only those emoticons that would “benefit from it most,” like the train, runner, or gun.

The corporation has already revealed 104 proposed candidates for a 2019 release; contenders include a yawning face, ballet shoes, flamingo, ice cube, ringed planet, kite, and chair.

There are also a handful of accessibility symbols: prosthetic arm and leg, ear with hearing aid, guide dog, wheelchair (manual and motorized), and probing cane.

The full list will be reviewed and finalized in September.
