Regional Indicator Symbol

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Regional Indicator Symbols are a set of 26 alphabetic characters (A-Z) in the Universal Character Set intended to be used to encode ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 two-letter country codes in a way that allows optional special treatment.

These were defined as part of the Unicode 6.0 support for emoji, as an alternative to encoding separate characters for each country flag. Although they can be displayed as Roman letters, it is intended that implementations may choose to display them in other ways, such as by using national flags.[1][2] The Unicode FAQ indicates that this mechanism should be used and that symbols for national flags will not be directly encoded.[3]

They are encoded in the range U+1F1E6 ๐Ÿ‡ฆ regional indicator symbol letter a (HTML: 🇦) to U+1F1FF ๐Ÿ‡ฟ regional indicator symbol letter z (HTML: 🇿) within the Enclosed Alphanumeric Supplement block in the Supplementary Multilingual Plane.[4]

Example[edit]

This is a demonstration of how these characters appear in your browser: ๐Ÿ‡ฆ ๐Ÿ‡ง ๐Ÿ‡จ ๐Ÿ‡ฉ ๐Ÿ‡ช ๐Ÿ‡ซ ๐Ÿ‡ฌ ๐Ÿ‡ญ ๐Ÿ‡ฎ ๐Ÿ‡ฏ ๐Ÿ‡ฐ ๐Ÿ‡ฑ ๐Ÿ‡ฒ ๐Ÿ‡ณ ๐Ÿ‡ด ๐Ÿ‡ต ๐Ÿ‡ถ ๐Ÿ‡ท ๐Ÿ‡ธ ๐Ÿ‡น ๐Ÿ‡บ ๐Ÿ‡ป ๐Ÿ‡ผ ๐Ÿ‡ฝ ๐Ÿ‡พ ๐Ÿ‡ฟ. Following is a demonstration of sample letter pairs in a variety of fonts.
