Then we're totally doomed :)

I mean, how could we hope to solve this kind of issue on our level if
even those of the world can't ?

Anyway, sticking to the official internation standard list of
countries maintained by UN (if such a list exists) seems much more
neutral to me. We don't decide anything on countries, we use the
decision of an official organization empowered to make such a
decision.

By abandoning flags alltogether, we actually make a decision: we
choose to side with those who don't agree with the UN.
