new version of rtpg (rtpg2) will have language button and geoIP peer's
information with country's flag etc. 

Why should I avoid adding flags? I looked through Your links but I
didn't understand why using flags is a bad way? I have found full
free flag collection, flags occur in many packages and I think it is
the obvious method to separate geo information.
