Where does 🏫 - school emoji come from?

See Next Word

The school emoji was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015. Since we’re on the subject of education … we’re pretty sure the creation of emojis had little to do with the field of semiotic theory (which is all about the value of symbols and signs in communication). Or, did it?

Microsoft’s version shows a quaint, smaller building with one level, but most show 2-story buildings in earth tones with no flag poles.
