That's just annoying, I understand very well, that using flags for languages is a bad idea, but being unable to use them for countries themselves is really annoying (I can see it might be useful especially for local fedora websites) :-/ But yeah, makes sense to ban for all or allow for all... Martin PS: me thinks the proper place for this topic would be fedora-legal, but as long as no-one creates them (and the main contributors will not in the near future, because we have icons with much higher priority that need to be fixed/created) it is a non-issue in echo, dunno how on your side...
