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 ‘Malta Flag’, for example.
The flag of Malta has two equal vertical bands of white (hoist side) and red. In the upper hoist-side corner is a representation of the George Cross, edged in red. According to legend, the colors are taken from the red and white checkered banner of Count Roger of Sicily who removed a bi-colored corner and granted it to Malta in 1091. In 1942, King George VI of the UK awarded the George Cross to the islanders for their exceptional bravery and gallantry in World War II. Since independence in 1964, the George Cross bordered in red has appeared directly on the white field.

Malta became a sovereign state on September 21, 1964.
The colors are taken from the red and white checkered banner of Count Roger of Sicily who removed a bi-colored corner and granted it to Malta in 1091. An uncontested explanation is that the colors are those of the Knights of Saint John. The Order of Saint John ruled Malta from 1530 to 1798.
The Maltese flag was officially adopted on September 21, 1964.
Malta is governed by a Parliamentary Republic.
