Thanks @Gijs Rogé :)
Flags denote nations, not languages. Shouldn't be used for languages.
Other than that, nice. :)
Eh, flat enough :)
Good job :)
Love the colors. Bravo!
I think flags are a good enough representation of a language. Good job :)
@Haziq Mir Yes I agree too, especially because it helps user to navigate.
Why flags should not be used to indicate language choice
Why flags do not represent languages
To name a few. (There are more links inside those two articles).
Or to put an example: Korean, South Korean flag or North Korean flag? Is North Korea's korean "less korean" than South Korea's?
Portuguese, Brazil's or Portugal's flag? Portugese was born in Portugal, but there are more portuguese speakers in Brazil...
Again: flags identify nations, not languages. It's a design error to associate languages with flags. (But you're free to do it, if you wish, with the risk of offending somebody in the process).
@Damian Vila Of course, I definitely understand your point. But if you wouldn't use the flags, navigation through the languages would be much of a pain.
What help us decide which theme are we going to use for these uncertain languages/nations (which there are only few) is our target group.
For example because our target group are americans, they will associate Portuguese more with Brazil than Portugal, in contrary to Europeans.
But in different situations, I wouldn't use flags, I agree with your point.
