The Unicode Consortium has announced a proposed update to its emoji documentation that provides support for regional flag emojis.

As noted by Emojipedia, the new functionality and guidelines would allow for Apple and other vendors to implement emojis for regions such as U.S. states, Canadian provinces and territories, or countries of the United Kingdom.
