Taïwan is not part of the United-Nations for historical reasons, since China 
took the place of its reprentatives in the United-Nations. Taïwan is not a 
recognized state. The Taïwanese flag does not have international recognition.  

For example, you will hardly find a single legal Taïwan ambassy in the world.

But, keep in mind that localisation is mostly adapting each software to the 
locale habits and practices. In the case of Taïwan, the choice should be left 
to the Taïwanese representatives of Debian.
