Flags shamelessly borrowed from Spybot SD and a few other places..
I mostly made this just to see how images would look in a poll. :)

It needs Chines, Japanese, and some Arabic languages (or is Arabic all the same language in all the Arab countries?)

Also Pakistani, if that is different from Hindi.

CNM…I may be ignorant on a great many things, but I do believe there are a few more than three languages in use. ;) :lol:
Perhaps adding a few more languages to the list or perhaps at least an ‘other’ option.


Edit: Whoops, I spoke too soon. I see that you have added a few more options while I was posting. :p :D

Both sets of my grandparents came from Holland after WWII. My father's parents built greenhouses and started business and my mother's father was an electrician. So that would mean i am a Dutch heritage but i do not speak it at all. I was born Canadian and will always be proud of where i come from.

My first language is Dutch also called Flemish in Belgium.
The main difference between Dutch and Flemish is the accent.
My best second language is English and I understand alot of French and German.
That's normal in Belgium, because we learn 4 languages at school : Dutch, French, German and English to do business with our neighbour countries.
In my opinion English is THE world language. Sometimes I wished English was my first language.

The pakistani language is better called URDU, and yeah its a lot different from Hindi and is also known as the most sweetest language. :D

There are alot of French speaking people here, but a very few have actually voted, com' on guys you have to vote as well rather than just writing here.

Well cnm, I searched for a pakistani flag but could find the 24x16 size. Well, my language is Urdu which you called as Pakistani and yes, it is alot different from Hindi and should be as a separate language, and Arabic is same in all countries that speak it. So, please add Urdu as well in your poll because I have found some Paki guys here and a few of my friends are members here.

No that is not the right one cnm. Pakistan's flag is similar to that of Turkey just that it has a green colour with a white rectangle at the left site.
Alright, instead of just saying I can attach it. Pakistan's flag is attached but you see its way to big. Just posting to help you figure out the Paki flag.
