Country flag emojis showing as black flags

I’m finding that the emojis for the English, Welsh and Scottish flags are posting as black flags.

As you can see:

:black_flag:󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 :black_flag:󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 :black_flag:󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

Other national and non-national flags (such as the EU flag) are all posting correctly.

It’s weird and my British users are complaining😅

When I edit this post, the three flags show correctly as English, Scottish and Welsh in the edit box, but as soon as I save they become black flags.


That is… very odd!

Note that Windows 10 itself, for political (?) reasons won’t even show native flag emoji.

What do you mean by “native” flag emoji?

He means unicode emojis, as opposed to our Discourse unicode emoji to image conversion.
