Converts string of country codes into string of emoji flags.
Converts string of country codes to string of emoji flags. As an argument use a single 2-letter country code or a string of multiple codes.
Emoji symbol is a textual replacement for a graphic image file while having the benefits of a graphic image. The image file is already present at your intended destination (a person's device), so why would you transmit the image to them again and again? -- Use emoji!
An image file equivalent to an emoji symbol may be tens, hundreds of kilobytes in size, while an emoji symbol is only several bytes. That's a bandwidth saving of around 10,000 times. If you use emoji instead of image files, you reduce your carbon footprint.
Now you can include emoji in plain text files, even in plain text emails, making them sharp, colourful and rich looking. You can put emoji flags into your database too!
Not every platform (hardware + OS) supports emoji. Therefore, use with caution! To my knowledge, iOS, macOS, Android are capable of displaying emoji. Additionally, some platforms may not be able to display certain flags. If unsure, use this as a reference and easy way to test your platform: http://unicode.org/emoji/charts/full-emoji-list.html

Use the extra file
update-table-flags.sql to insert emoji flags into your SQL table. Make sure to use the following settings:
$link = mysqli_connect($HOSTNAME, $USERNAME, $PASSWORD, $DBNAME); mysqli_set_charset($link, "utf8mb4");
