But what is the official internationally recognized status of Taiwan ?

If that's a part of china, then it's not an actual country, then we
can remove its flag.

If that's an independent country, then it has a flag, and we can use it.

I really wonder why we are trying to solve those geopolitical
international issues. Those are for the governments and the UN to
solve. They agree on a list of officially recognized countries, and we
use it.

I really can't understand where the problem comes from :-/

Are there countries not agreeing with each others regarding the
official status of other countries (not like country A says country B
is inside country A, but rather country A and country B disagree on
the status of country C) ? Are there countries that disagree with the
UN regarding the official status of a "geographic area" ?
