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 ‘Netherlands Flag’, for example.
The flag of the Netherlands is composed of three equal horizontal bands of bright vermilion red (top), white, and cobalt blue. The colors were derived from those of William I, Prince of Orange, who led the Dutch Revolt against Spanish sovereignty in the latter half of the 16th century. Originally the upper band was orange, but because its dye tended to turn red over time, the red shade was eventually made the permanent color. The banner is perhaps the oldest tricolor in continuous use.
