@IngaLovinde oops, that wasn't actively on my mind.

Flags are easily a minefield, which is of course the point of this shitpost...

@Stoori d'ya mind me asking for a list of what the flags you used are? Just curious, esp the english one! (I've never claimed to be good at anything geography related. Kid me, despite knowing all about the equator, spent a *long* time believing alaska was at the top of south america.)

(But yeah it's definitely just this minor background radiation to click on flags of America or England for English when im on and from the opposite end of the planet, ae.)

@certifiedperson you can see the shortcodes if you're on a computer and take your mouse over the flags. The english one is Eswatini, just one random country of the many where english is an official language.

@Stoori Swedish as Finland slayed me 😆 It's one of those things where it's aqccurate, I know it's accurate, but it still makes me do a double-take.

Celeste has something like this used for flavour, where the "English" language option is the Canadian flag, cus the game is set in Canada.

If they wanted to be really cheeky, they could have used it for French too (or, the flag of Quebec)
