      Nobody would object or get insulted by showing a country flag. Country flags are symbols, and showing them is pretty much a major part of the purpose. There are a lot of countries and people who would object to various things they'll see as "desecrating" the flag, but merely showing it doesn't fall into that category. (In theory someone who is resisting or fleeing from a regime that changed the flag may have a problem with that flag being used to represent their country but that strikes me as a bit of a far-fetched scenario here).

      There is a different problem with using flags as indicators of language, even though it's a common practice. The links between a country (which the flag represents) and a language are not always a strong guarantee. You're probably not going to use Canada's flag, but if you did would it be for English or for French? The flag of Israel is used in these cases to signify Hebrew, but Russian and Arabic are official state languages. The US flag is very often used in these cases for American English, but the US has a very large Spanish-speaking population who live among other Spanish Speakers, can work in Spanish, buy things in Spanish, and interact with local government/authorities in Spanish, and it shouldn't be obvious to them why the flag of their country is used to clearly represent a language other than Spanish. And so on and so forth. Country=Language is a weak claim.
      These aren't going to cause insults, it's not a disrespect for the flag/country, but it's just wrong to a certain degree.

      On the other hand I would recommend adding the name of each language not just in the actual language itself (as you're currently doing), but also in English. This can make it easier to search/scan, and makes it easier (or even makes it possible) for someone who doesn't know the language (and who may not even have a matching font installed in their browser) to still download the file in the relevant language for someone else.

      Stabbers: Yep. The Spanish translation (by a real live Spanish backer) is up, and there are backers working on a few others. I don't think we have an Italian one yet except my bargain basement copy-paste version. You can email contact@PocketOptionGames.com to get a text file of the revised rules to translate.

      I can do the Italian translation if you don't have someone alredy... from what I could see so far you just ran it past google translate, right? (apologies if not...)

      I agree, maybe have the flags a bit smaller with the names of the countries next to them?

      It looks a little weird right now. Maybe the size of the flags should be smaller...
