It was another victory for the white rose on Monday.
The symbolic bloom came out top trumps on Yorkshire Day after it was revealed as the latest icon added to smartphone emoji keyboards.
The rose emoji was one of five created by Sheffield-based internet providers Plusnet to mark the occasion, receiving nearly 2,500 votes on Facebook alone.
Other emojis, small thumbnail-sized images used in smartphone messaging, included a teapot, flatcap, Yorkshire pudding and a Yorkie terrier.
But the other four failed to beat the majestic rose, which has hopes of being introduced as the latest addition to iPhones and Android phones.
Some 6,000 people took part in the online campaign to decide the county’s favourite emoji, with more than a third voting for the rose.
Plusnet say they are now in the process of submitting an application to the Unicode Consortium, who will oversee the emoji’s introduction.
Plusnet CIO Stew Welbourne said: “With the existing American-themed emoticons and the recent creation of ‘Londonmojis’ we felt the people of Yorkshire deserve their very own official icon.”
