Business news outlet Quartz has just launched its first mobile app — an emoji keyboard for iOS featuring all 208 flags from the countries of the world.

It’s certainly not what one would expect from a news site, but there you have it. Quartz teamed up with Emojipedia to put the keyboard together.

You’ll need iOS 8.3 to download the app, and your chat recipients will need the latest versions of Android or iOS to view your emoji flags.

We’ve contacted Quartz to find out about the thinking behind its first app and will update this post when we hear back.
