    Anyone else having the issue where country flag emojis show up as letters instead of the graphic?

    Emojis are font glyphs. They are not images in their basic form. Different browsers, operating systems, and platforms (i.e. Facebook) spend processing power looking for these glyphs and replacing them with graphics at different resolutions. This isn't possible with vBulletin.

    The Flag representation you see is how Windows 10 renders them at this time. Microsoft has to update their systems and browsers so they work properly. You can see how other systems render flags here: https://unicode.org/emoji/charts/ful...ist.html#flags
