Fast forward to the 1990s when Buddy icons made their grand entry, signifying emotions through small images. The true game-changer arrived in 1999 when Japanese artist Shigetaka Kurita gave us the first emoji. And there was no looking back. Emojis became a global sensation, transforming digital communication forever.

🚩 Understanding the Quirks of Flag Emojis 🖥️

The wonders of the digital world aren’t always without a few hiccups, and flag emojis can sometimes bear the brunt of this.

To display emojis, operating systems use something called Unicode, an international programming standard that allows devices to use and recognize any character from any language.

However, not all systems will display the same emoji in the same way. Now, the curious case of flag emojis: they’re not actually encoded as images but as a sequence of two ‘regional indicator’ letters. For example, the American flag emoji is coded as “US,” and the device interprets that and shows the corresponding flag.

Now, why are companies like Microsoft not fully supporting flag emojis? It’s primarily about practicality and politics.

First, there are hundreds of potential flags, including not only countries but also subdivisions like states or provinces, which make it a challenging task to support and constantly update them all. Moreover, flags can be politically sensitive. As global entities, tech companies often avoid engaging in geopolitical controversies that could arise from the display (or non-display) of certain flags.

While it might lead to some disappointment when your favorite flag emoji doesn’t display correctly, remember it’s less of a technical limitation and more of a careful business decision. 🌐💼🤔
