The lobster and other new emojis will start showing up on mobile phones in August or September, according to the Unicode blog post. Dubbed Emoji 11.0, the list contains no less than 157 emojis that you might see on Android and iOS devices in the second half of the year.

Maine's state crustacean will soon be one of the "emoji" pictograms available for electronic messaging.

Sen. Angus King tweeted about the development with emojis of his own. The Unicode Emoji Subcommittee determines which characters will become part of the official emoji lexicon, creating a uniform code that can be used across platforms.

The crusade to bring a lobster emoji into existence began in the summer of 2017, WTMW reported, when a petition to this effect made its way throughout the Internet.
