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).
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 ‘Canadian Flag’, for example.
The Canadian flag consists of two vertical red bands (hoist and fly side, half width) with a white square between them. The size ratio of the three panels is 1:2:1. In the center of the white square is a red maple leaf with 11 points. Sometimes the flag itself is referred to as the Maple Leaf.

July 1 (1867) is the national day of independence.
The current Canadian flag was officially adopted February 15, 1965.
Canada has had many flag’s in its history. The maple leaf has been used as an emblem by Canada since the 18th century. By the 1960’s there were calls for an official flag which led to the Great Flag Debate of 1964 and produced the current version we know today.
Red and white are the only colors on the Canadian flag. They were proclaimed the national colors by King George V on the recommendation of the Canadian Government in 1921.
There is no significance to the number of points on the Canadian flag’s maple leaf. The current design was determined to be the least blurry after conducting wind tunnel tests.
Canada’s official motto,A Mari usque ad Mare, appears on its coat of arms, which translates as “From Sea to Sea.”
