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 ‘Uruguay Flag’, for example.
The flag of Uruguay has nine equal horizontal stripes of white (top and bottom) alternating with blue. There is a white square in the upper hoist-side corner. On it is a yellow sun bearing a human face (delineated in black) known as the Sun of May. The sun has 16 rays that alternate between triangular and wavy. The stripes represent the nine original departments of Uruguay. The sun symbol evokes the legend of the sun breaking through the clouds, and its features are said to represent those of Inti, the Inca god of the sun.
