Twitter has rolled out special emojis for users tweeting about Pope Francis’ visit to the United States.

Tweets with the hashtag “PopeInUS” render an icon of a smiling, white-capped pontiff in front of a U.S. flag.

There are also emojis for #PopeInDC - the U.S. Capitol; #PopeInNYC - the Statue of Liberty; and #PopeInPhilly - the Liberty Bell.

Francis wraps up a four-day Cuba trip today and flies north to the United States.
