A new report from Swiftkey has found the Emojis most used in each state, and some of them might be surprising.

Swiftkey, a keyboard app for iOS and Android, looked at more than one billion emojis used throughout the year, according to ABC News. They even have an interactive map to compare states.

New York uses the Statue of Liberty Emoji most, while Delaware uses the football. Ohio most often uses the ice cream sundae.

Not surprisingly, Hawaii uses the surfer Emoji.

Each state’s signature emoji was determined that its use was more than its average usage in the United States as a whole, along with a weighted average treating each state’s usage equally to account for population differences.
