Too late. We already remove content from various packages where necessary,
as stated earlier in the thread.

If you're seriously suggesting we set up legal counsel in all countries
before taking any action, that's not going to happen. Honestly, that
sounds like intentionally setting the bar ridiculously high just for
the purpopse of making sure no one could possibly do anything you might
disagree with.

Given that I'm fairly sure there are zero countries on the planet
where flags *cannot* be made illegal by some act of the populace
or government, that's a specious argument.
