DescriptionWashington (CNN)Sen. Angus King of Maine has finally netted his state a lobster emoji.

In September, the independent senator sent a letter to the California-based Unicode Consortium pressing for the emoji, highlighting the crustacean's economic and cultural value to Maine.

On Wednesday, the Unicode Consortium announced the emoji would be added to its library, a move that King hailed as "great news." He thanked the emoji-creating company "for recognizing the impact of this critical crustacean, in Maine and across the country."
