Given what Fedora does with respect to software patents in otherwise

That was based on the laws in Fedora's country, the US.

The benefits takes away my freedoms of referencing a country my flag and
image that my own country recognises.

I am not removing any choice from *you*. You are free to reference
it as you see fit.

In that sense, a flag is just "a mixture of colours", it has no official designation.

Only the zealots deal in absolutes.

Funny how you did not comment to the part on DNSSEC keys of the Taiwan situation,
the one that actualy refers to me as a maintainer of dnssec-conf, and which
could be a real life scenario that goes beyond pictures of flags.
