The way Deluge upstream uses the flags is to mark the country of origin
for the details in the "Peers" information tab, so that's not really
applicable here.

Well, the flags that Deluge uses are PD images from FamFamFam.com [1],
and the Deluge developers do intend (as is my understanding) to keep
them updated. However, the original source is rather old (from 2005
according to File Roller) so I do not know if _that_ upstream is
inactive simply from lack of necessity or due to other priorities.

And, Roozbeh: Thanks very much for bringing up this discussion in such a
thought-provoking way. I hope we can get this issue resolved - one way
or the other - in a timely manner. :)
