The Hashflag: Newest Trend On Twitter

What are Hashflags???

Hashflags [are] images that appear after a #hashtag, and are enabled on Twitter for specific occasions or events. Sometimes referred to as custom Twitter Emojis.

Hashflags were first mentioned back in 2010 for the World Cup, and reintroduced to Twitter for the World Cup in 2014. It wasn't until the launch of Star Wars hashflags in April 2015 that they really started picking up steam.

Hashflags are enabled for a wide range of events from political, religious, entertainment, and sporting.

Hashflags are only active for a short period of time and after that time your hashtag will be flagless.
