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 ‘Uganda Flag’, for example.
The flag of Uganda consists of six equal horizontal bands of black (top), yellow, red, black, yellow, and red (bottom). A white disk is superimposed at the center and depicts a grey crowned crane (the national symbol) facing the hoist side. Black symbolizes the African people, yellow sunshine and vitality, and red African brotherhood. The crane was the military badge of Ugandan soldiers under the UK.
