Mothers Day is over in the UK, but in America, it falls on 14 May.

As part of the effort to honour mothers for their love and care, Facebook has added a new reaction to the social media platform.

First appearing in 2016, the violet flower emoji is now available again, in between other regular reactions.

It’s known as the ‘thankful’ reaction, and shows up with this caption in the app, or ‘grateful’ for web and mobile users.

When selecting the reaction in the Facebook app, a collection of violet flowers will pop up and cover the whole screen.

It can also be used in the Comments section, but currently only appears to be available to places celebrating Mothers Day on Sunday.

Facebook has added this feature on a temporary basis, so it may disappear once the occasion is over.
