That is my understanding.

I don't believe that North Lanarkshire has an associated flag, which I
think is the case for most UK counties and councils (Cornwall, Devon
and Dorset all have flags, but they may be the exceptions).  In fact
not all of the four nations comprising the UK have a flag -- for
political reasons there is no official flag for Northern Ireland, so I
do not know what an implementation would display for <1F3F3 E0047

emblazoned with "GB-NIR".
