Why you shouldn’t use flags language selection

I don’t advise others to use flags for language selection on a website.

The reason is obvious – I can live in Romania, and although I might speak Romanian, there are some people in Romania that don’t speak Romanian.

Therefore, it’s much better to offer an option to select by language (Romanian, English), as opposed to the flag of a country (Romania, UK).

Thinking about this issue this way might also make you realize that there are other languages spoken in a country – Hungarian and German, in Romania, for example.
