A lot of emoji consist of more than one code point.

  • ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต: A flag is defined as a pair of "regional symbol indicator letters" (๐Ÿ‡ฏ + ๐Ÿ‡ต)
  • ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿฟ: Some emoji may be followed by a skin tone modifier: ๐Ÿ™‹ + ๐Ÿฟ
  • ๐Ÿ˜€๏ธŽ or ๐Ÿ˜€๏ธ: Windows 10 allows you to specify if an emoji is colored or black/white by appending a variation selector (U+FE0E or U+FE0F)
  • ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ: a family. Encoded by joining the emoji for boy, girl, woman and man (๐Ÿ‘ฆ, ๐Ÿ‘ง, ๐Ÿ‘ฉ, ๐Ÿ‘จ) together with zero-width joiners (U+200D). On platforms which support it, this is rendered as an emoji of a family with two kids.
