Certain flags always cause some trouble in some countries. China
does not accept a Taiwanese flag, some Arab nations don't accept the
Israeli flag, the German flag might look offensive to some people...
A possible solution could be to make the set of available flags
depend on the current locale settings. So e.g. a *_CN locale would
not show the Taiwanese flag.
There shouldn't be a problem with the German flag, though. This is
history and the flag is frequently being used to represent the
language without problems.
