They may expect the keyboard layout chooser to use them, but you end up 
with awkward situations where geopolitical flags don't usefully 
represent keyboard layouts that are used in multiple countries or 
countries which have multiple keyboard layouts. Even from a purely 
technical perspective, flags rarely accurately depict what you're trying 
to present to the user.
