Did you know, the main carto style renders emojis in names? 👍 But in monochrome, not colour. 😭

openstreetmap.org/node/1820624

I used this shell command to quickly find that example:

osmium tags-filter ~/osm/data/ireland-and-northern-ireland-latest.osm.pbf name -f opl -o - | grep -P "name=[^,]+%1f[0-9a-fA-F]{2,8}%" | head

@amapanda it looks lovely! Color emoji would make the labels too distracting, no?

@steko I found this while at a live talk at from one of the OSM carto devs, and yeah, he said that you shouldn't render it in colour for that reason.
