    How do you know which flag code is which? Do you have some sort of key or legend? I mean, the GB flag is great, but what if we need one of the others? Also, I used the code you have listed and it shows as a broken image. 🙁

      I’ve updated the description to include a link to a Wiki article showing the included flags.

  2. Hi, loved your plugin but I honestly need the flags to be bigger (like double/triple the current size).

    If you have any option to help me with this I will really appreciate this a lot.

    Thanks from advance,

      Hi Eli,
      The icons I use are from famfamfam which are only available as 16×16; you can replace the flags in the images folder with any png files you want and use the filename as the parameter to load the image.
