Years back BlackBerry introduced the use of country flags in BBM. They are simple codes that let you put any of the supported country flags to use in BBM - either in your status (tap your name in the top of the main window to edit) or any chat. The codes work across the board in BBM on BlackBerry, Android or iOS so no one has to miss out on this fun feature. It's nothing too crazy, but it does add a bit of style to your BBM.

To use the codes, you simply enter the corresponding country code followed by a space, then the text is automagically converted to a cute little BBMicized country flag that looks something like this:

Using the country flags just adds a bit of personality and fun to BBM, so if you're looking to spice things up, here's the full list of supported country flags in BBM.
