Guess the city by the emoji


Test your knowledge of well-known cities and emojis with The Telegraph’s new quiz.

To celebrate World Emoji Day, the quiz takes nineteen cities and represents them in emoji form, offering a written clue for those of us who aren’t experts in the pictorial language.

Some are easy (such as ‘Spanish angels’) while some may require a bit of lateral thinking on the lines of iconic quiz show ‘Catchphrase’ (in which you have to say what you see).

Have a go at the quiz here and tell us how well you do – or let us know if you’ve got your own city-emoji suggestions…
