The flags currently used by xrmap come for a large part from the SVG flags

of the openclipart collection

   http://www.openclipart.org

with some minor modifications and replacements.

They have been completed so as to include all data needed by xrmap, e.g. all US and Canadian State flags, and all other American, Australian, British, Canadian, Danish and French dependencies and territories - in total about 50 additional flags.

These additional SVG flags have either been compiled from public domain sources, or obtained by various other tools (noticeably 'potrace', used to convert bitmap flags into vector format, see e.g. usa_florida.svg which was obtained in this way). We release them in the public domain (unless this would contradict the original license, but we are unaware of any such case).

The 'buildflags' main use is to process the collection of source SVG flags and convert them into other formats. This requires inkscape version >= 0.42
