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 ‘Timor-Leste Flag’, for example.
The flag of Timor-Leste is made up of red with a black isosceles triangle (based on the hoist side). Beneath the black triangle is a slightly longer yellow arrowhead that extends to the center of the flag. A white star—pointing to the upper hoist-side corner of the flag—is in the center of the black triangle. Yellow denotes the colonialism in Timor-Leste’s past, black represents the obscurantism that needs to be overcome, red stands for the nation’s struggle for liberation. The white star symbolizes peace and serves as a guiding light.
