Flag emojis are unicode symbols, like any other letter or number on your keyboard. This means you can copy and paste the emoji itself into your code, whatever the language (click the button above).
They actually count as two characters: the two-letter country code (the ISO international standard). The unicode and shortcode both represent country data which devices can interpret and display the emoji.
Emoji shortcodes are used on some platforms as a way for users to type in emojis from the keyboard. If you type the emoji shortcode on Github or Slack, the emoji will appear.
*The official name of the emoji is only the country name, not ‘Mauritania Flag’, for example.
The flag of Mauritania is a green field with a yellow, five-pointed star between the horns of a yellow, upward-pointing crescent moon. Red stripes run along the top and bottom edges. The crescent, star, and color green are traditional symbols of Islam. Green also represents hope for a bright future. The yellow color stands for the sands of the Sahara. Red symbolizes the blood shed in the struggle for independence.
