I tried adding a flag emoji to the location field of my GitHub profile, but it is blocked with the following message:
Profile location contains unicode characters above 0xffff
Emojis work just fine in the main profile field, but not in the location field. I think flag emojis in particular are quite appropriate for the location field since they provide a visual/concise way to express location.
Can emojis (particularly flags) be allowed in the location field?
