Nice.  That's almost 700 images right there.

Good idea.  An occassional release of clipart would be good.

You should be aware that there are some issues regarding flags.  For 
example, the Nazi flag is illegal in Germany and other countries.  Even 
where it is not illegal, there are some moral issues surrounding its 
distribution.  As another example, most arab countries do not recognize the 
country of Israel.

It is probably best to start with flags that are recognized by the UN or the 
Olympics.  Then you can consider new flags individally (for instance, the 
flags of French states would be safe too).

Perhaps you'd rather not deal with this issue at all.  That's up to you. 
But I thought that you should be aware of this.
