Do you mean, people were using these emojis on a platform that supported
them before Unicode standardised them?

To that I would respond that you only need to search Twitter for people
using the #pride hashtag to see how it's used there. Unfortunately, as
Slack is a private communication platform, it is hard to get usage
examples. All we can state for sure is that people are using the rainbow
flag in running text like any other emoji [image: 👍]
