[Clipart] Continuing improving the openclipart flag collection

So I added the missing flags some time ago, but I would like to continue
fixing issues to make sure the openclipart gallery is as nice as the
sodipodi one was, or preferably better.

I submitted new tarballs for the missing international flags as that was
the suggested way of updating flags. But there are other things I would
like to do to. 

Which is 
a) Move flags away from Geography - that is not the correct section for
them as a lot of flags have no correlation at all to Geography. The
Signs and symbols is probably a better category, especially since I put
the sign keyword into every flag

b) Move out the crests that have gotten into the flags collection into a
separate subsection

c) Re-order some of the flags.Subnational flags should be grouped and
maybe put into national subsection for instance. So under Europe it
should probably be a France and Germany subsection for instance.

d) Add some more flags. I know there are still some flags on sodipodi
site not migrated over, but I am waiting on getting other issues fixed
first so it is easier to do the comparison.

e) Clean up titles to only have flag name, not author etc.

I am more than willing to do the work needed for this myself, but I
would need someone to explain me how I can do it in a way that works for
the way openclipart works atm. I am still not sure what parts of the
process are manual, what are automatic etc.
