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 ‘Sao Tome and Principe Flag’, for example.
The flag of Sao Tome and Principe consists of three horizontal bands of green (top), yellow (double width), and green. There are two black five-pointed stars placed side by side in the center of the yellow band and a red isosceles triangle based on the hoist side. Green stands for the country’s rich vegetation, red refers to the struggle for independence, and yellow represents cocoa, one of the country’s main agricultural products. The two stars symbolize the two main islands.
