The emoji sequences are stable. Please read
and follow the links to the CLDR spec and data.

Let SD be the result of mapping each character in the tag_spec to a
character in [0-9a-z] by subtracting 0xE0000.

   1. SD must then be a specification as per [CLDR
      <http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr51/proposed.html#CLDR>] of either a
      Unicode subdivision_id
      <http://unicode.org/reports/tr35/index.html#unicode_subdivision_id> (
      or a 3-digit unicode_region_subtag
      <http://unicode.org/reports/tr35/index.html#unicode_region_subtag> (
      2. SD must have CLDR idStatus equal to "regular" or "deprecated".
