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 ‘Latvia Flag’, for example.
The flag of Latvia is made up of three horizontal bands of maroon (top), white (half-width), and maroon. The flag is one of the older banners in the world. A medieval chronicle mentions a red standard with a white stripe being used by Latvian tribes in about 1280.
