The sunflower is the national flower of Ukraine. It’s a symbol of peace, and now also resistance, after a video of a Ukrainian woman offering sunflower seeds to a heavily armed Russian soldier went viral β€” “so at least sunflowers will grow when you all lie down here,” she told him. Displaying sunflowers has become one of many ways to show solidarity with the Ukrainian people.

Add the Ukrainian flag to your Twitter and Instagram profiles

Twitter and Instagram don’t offer the same profile picture features as Facebook, but you can add the flag emoji next to your screen name. Choose Edit profile, tap the “Name” field and use the emoji keyboard to choose the flag. This works on the Twitter and Instagram phone apps but not on computers. Windows 10 does have an emoji keyboard (press the Windows key + .) but it doesn’t include any flags.
