Remove "language flags" from backend
Currently a language is represented as a flag in the TYPO3 backend. This is an anti pattern. Flags represent countries or nations, but they do not represent languages.
Please take a look at this link: http://www.flagsarenotlanguages.com/blog/why-flags-do-not-represent-language/
- Flags are symbols that represent countries or nations.
- Languages represent a shared method of communication between people.
- Flags are unique to a country or nation: but languages are often spoken across national borders. By using a flag for a language, you may confuse or even offend users.
For example in Switzerland multiple languages are spoken: Frensh, Italian, German and Romansh. If you create a multi language project for a customer from Switzerland it is problematic to choose the right flags (this might getting more complicated in areas where people are more offended, if the wrong flag is used)
Therefore I recommend to replace the flags with the locale code or simply the name.
