I‘d really love having a way of depicting spoken/written language without the use of flags.
Flags often speak colonialism, suppression, territorial conflict, genocide and war. Some don‘t correlate to regions or language at all.
There are significant differences between states, borders and language use.
Traditional english: 🇬🇧
Simplified english: 🇺🇸
Some variants: 🇸🇭🇬🇸🇵🇳🇳🇿🇲🇸🇫🇰🇨🇰🇰🇾🇻🇬🇦🇺🇦🇮

@MacLemon why not use the name of the language in the language? English, Español, Français, Deutsch, ...
