Then what would a "generic" flag be? Single-color flags are often used by
political groups (e.g. all black = fascist, so if you thought to avoid the
issue by using that, you've just made it worse).

The only reasonable definition of "generic" I can see is "this flag is not
used to represent a country", e.g. a set of flags being used as an icon
for "localization".
