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 ‘Antigua and Barbuda Flag’, for example.
The flag of Antigua and Barbuda comprises of red background, with an inverted isosceles triangle based on the top edge of the flag. The triangle is made of three horizontal bands of black (top), light blue, and white, with a yellow rising sun in the black band. The sun symbolizes the dawn of a new era, black represents the African heritage of most of the population, blue is for hope, and red is for the dynamism of the people. The “V” represents victory. The successive yellow, blue, and white coloring is also meant to evoke the country’s tourist attractions of sun, sea, and sand.
