King - Maine's mustached, independent senator, as well as outspoken lobster advocate and owner of the best Instagram account in Congress, who frequently sports his various lobster ties in the Capitol - celebrated the decision Wednesday.

King signed his tweet with an emoji for a cow followed by another for a crown. The consortium is accepting submissions with renderings through the end of March.

Angus King says the emoji is long-overdue and a cause for celebration for lobster lovers.
