About WhatsApp Emojis

WhatsApp has its own emoji designs which are now displayed on WhatsApp for Android (version 2.17.386 and above). Apple emoji images were previously used by WhatsApp on all platforms including Android, iOS and the web.

Emojis Flags England, ScotlandWales, and Texas are supported in WhatsApp but use non-standard country codes which differ from the subdivision codes listed in the Unicode Standard.
