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 ‘Moldova Flag’, for example.
The flag of Moldova has three equal vertical bands of Prussian blue (hoist side), chrome yellow, and vermilion red. The emblem in center of flag is a Roman eagle of dark gold (brown) outlined in black with a red beak and talons. It carries a yellow cross in its beak, a green olive branch in its right talons, and a yellow scepter in its left talons. On its breast is a shield divided horizontally red over blue with a stylized aurochs head, star, rose, and crescent all in black-outlined yellow. Based on the color scheme of the flag of Romania—with which Moldova shares a history and culture—but Moldova’s blue band is lighter. The reverse of the flag displays a mirrored image of the coat of arms.
