    Genuinely curious: how do you manage to add the Côte d’Ivoire flag when you really want the Irish flag?
    If you start typing “Irel..” in the emoji search you’ll get it. You even get nice text to tell you which is which :)

      Rob’s a man of history. No doubt he was tipping his hat to the original Irish tricolour which was apparently orange-white-green ;)

      “The first known vertical tricolour flag of orange-white-green dated from March 1848, but it was not until 1917 that it gained widespread popularity. The tricolour in its modern form (green-white-orange) was recognized by the constitution on December 29, 1937, and was not altered when the Republic of Ireland ended its participation in the British Commonwealth on April 18”
