Gregg, you're mistaken.Please, visit: http://unicode.org/Public/emoji/5.0/emoji-sequences.txtThat flag is not the BLACK FLAG... it is the England FlagAnother good example is the glyph "1️⃣"It is product of the sequence of unicode code points: 0031 FE0F 20E3 . Note that the first unicode code point in that sequence is the traditional/default '1' character, the same value for the ASCII Encoding... but it is following with 2 more code points, changing the glyph to be rendered.

I don't think so.3 - And the trickest of they, the glyphs. One or more unicode code points compose a single glyph.Unicode does not traffic in glyphs. (Except when it must for backwards compatibility.)
Example: This flag "🏴" is composed of 7 unicode code points, these code-points encoded as UTF-8 occupies 14 bytes.A single glyph (the flag) is composed by 7 unicode code points, or 14 UTF-8 bytes..Please try to be precise. If you mean
Character 'BLACK FLAG' (U+2691)Then you have a problem. That is exactly one code point and one char. If you mean some other Unicode char, then tell us what it is, in hex.
