The proposal for the playing card symbols was connected with the Emoji
proposals worked out for the Dublin meeting (April 2009). It was based
on an earlier draft containing the set of 52 playing cards + joker
used in the USA and other countries. As at that time, everybody
engaged in the encoding of symbols was heavily busy with emoji, there
was not enough time to review these 22 cards thoroughly (e.g. deciding
on the representative glyphs), while at least the fourth court (Knight
in addition to Jack, Queen, King) could be added then.
