What flag should I use to represent this language?
There’s no easy answer to this question, as national
flags and languages don’t always match up.
Some nations have more than one language; some languages
are spoken in more than one nation.
The easiest rule is to know your audience. If you are
writing in English, French, and Spanish to a
group of Europeans, use England or the
UJ for English, France for
French and Spain for Spanish.
For a group of North Americans, use the U.S.
for English, Canada or
Quebec for French, and
Mexico for Spanish. Use common sense and
choose a flag that will be
easily understood by the most people.
