When BBC One originally launched on Sky, it only had four regions - England ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ (also available for the Channel Islands), Wales ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ท๓ ฌ๓ ณ๓ ฟ, Northern Ireland ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช and Scotland ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ, and you could only view one (depending on the post code of your viewing card). They would air UK Today and, in England, tell people to press TV then 1 for their local news. BBC Two was entirely national until 2002-2004-ish but the BBC Choice regions could be viewed anywhere. Yeah, Myina did her research Wink

Got one of your flags wrong though.
Watch it and find out.

Just a heads up with using emojis. The ones you can select from the reply box work fine, but other emojis might not. I've got three black flags for England, Wales and Scotland, and 'IE' for Northern Ireland.

I think that's a Windows 10 issue rather than a forum issue.

Looking back, my wording and intent might be slightly unclear. I understand that it is a Windows 10 issue, and they do work on my phone. However, I doubt that I'm the only one who spends most of their time using Windows 10 when browsing the forum, so I was just wanting to say it as a general reminder (to myself as well), that not everybody can see every emoji, and that, whilst in this case, it isn't the end of the world as the message still gets across, it's best not to become too dependent on them.

It is. Black Flags and the ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช for me on my W10 Laptop, proper emoji flags on my Android phone

Edit: Firefox and Chrome show black flags, Edge shows four blocks after each flag. Does anybody bother with Edge ?

I can see the flags just fine, in Chrome, thanks to a plug-in called Emoji Swap. The problem is platform related, not OS related. It's fine on mobile but desktop computer browsers need an extension.

Were the flags even needed? We know what England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are without needing a flag after them.

We know what ๐Ÿ’ฉ is as well. I think you might as well ask whatโ€™s the point of Emojis.

Edit: I realised after you were talking about the context of the members post and not flag emojis in general.
