Frankly, that encoding of the flags of England, Scotland and Wales by
Unicode Inc. annoys me.
I say encode all five atomically. And others too.
There seems space for lots of comic faces but none for our flags.
Americans don't dip their flag, Unicode Inc. should not dip national

The Netherlands Antilles (ISO 3166-2 code AN) were dissolved in 2010.
Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Maarten became constituent states. But Bonaire,
Saba und Sint Eustatius are only special municipalities of the
Netherlands, but they became their own ISO 3166-2 code BQ in addition to
NL. The codes BQ-BO, BQ-SA and BQ-SE are synonyms of NL-BQ1, NL-BQ2 and
NL-BQ3. So I would recommend to encode the subdivision flag sequences
<flag>NLBQ1<cancel>, <flag>NLBQ2<cancel> and <flag>NLBQ3<cancel> similar
to the flags of England, Scotland and Wales.
