Emoji Tag Sequence

Emoji Tag Sequences are a mechanism which allow a series of characters to describe or create a new format of emoji.

These tags are comprised of a Black Flag emoji followed by a series of Tag Characters. Tag Sequences are only currently used for subdivision flag support to support subregions or subdivisions specified under ISO 3166-2.

All ISO 3166-2 codes are valid sequences for the purpose of emoji flag display, should vendors wish to support any.

These tag sequences are all RGI (recommended for general interchange) with the exception of the Texas flag emoji, which is only supported by WhatsApp.
