Flags represent nations, not languages. This is the wrong symbol and to
many it is a symbol of colonialism, a reminder of being a part of a
minority community, and government propoganda of a unified state. Many
cultures live within borders. Even look at the UK flag for English,
which isn’t the minority languages of its other kingdoms Scotland,
Wales, Northern Ireland. The British Empire demanded many countries
uptake their language and fly their flag, and now the UK only has the #6
most native speakers with 5 other nations with more English speakers.
