Emoji Codes

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 ‘Australia Flag’, for example.



The flag of Australia is made up of blue with the flag of the UK in the upper hoist-side quadrant and a large seven-pointed star in the lower hoist-side quadrant known as the Commonwealth or Federation Star. This star represents the federation of the colonies of Australia in 1901. Each point represents one of the six original states, with the remaining point representing Australia’s territories. On the fly half is a depiction of the Southern Cross constellation in white with one small five-pointed star, and four larger seven-pointed stars.
