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).
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 ‘United States Flag’, for example.
The American flag consists of thirteen horizontal red and white stripes representing the original thirteen colonies of the USA. The colors alternate with red on the top and bottom. On the hoist side in the upper left corner is a blue canton with fifty white 5-pointed stars. The 50 stars represent the current 50 states.
