Twitter has released all of the Olympic Game emojis to help users support their favorite athletes and nations on Twitter.

Each country has its own hashtag to be used like #USA, #GBR and #CAN, along with the matching flag emoji for all competing nations. The Refugee Olympic Team was given #ROT and in place of a flag emoji, their emoji is a world held in two hands.There is also a gold wreath crown like the one placed on Olympians heads when they win a medal. A mountain and sun emoji is meant to represent the host city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The Opening and Closing ceremonies each have their own firework emoji and each medal has its own emoji to match.

There are several suggested hashtags to be used with the emojis to keep every aspect of the Games trending on Twitter such as #OlympicGames, #Rio2016, #OpeningCeremony and #Gold, #Silver, #Bronze.
