 The Croatian emoji flag which is automatically triggered when using
 regional symbol indicator HR (🇭🇷) is the Nazi version of
 the flag. These unicodes get translated automatically to the static image:

 Please note on the center coat of arms that the top left square is white.
 In the current version of the Croatian flag, the top left square is red.

 You can see examples here (please note that this Independent State of
 Croatia was a Nazi puppet regime):

 Current flag example here:

 Expected outcome: the emoji version of the Croatian flag is updated so
 that the top right square of the checkerboard pattern is red. You can see
 other examples here (please note that twitter is also using the wrong
 version): https://emojipedia.org/flag-for-croatia/
