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 ‘Switzerland Flag’, for example.
The flag of Switzerland consists of a red square with a bold, equilateral white cross in the center that does not extend to the edges of the flag. Various medieval legends disagree on the origin of the flag. A white cross used as identification for troops of the Swiss Confederation is first described at the Battle of Laupen (1339).
