I would like the player's nation color to be chosen from one or a few of the
most common colors in the nation's flag, and that color stored in the ruleset.
For Freeciv players it will be easier to find players on the minimap. It will
also be easier to remember players in the game if their color is based on
their flag. At the moment there is a separate column in the nations dialog
listing each players color, and this extra color is extra information about a
player which adds no value. 

When selecting a nation color, steps would have to be taken to reduce the
number of color collisions between nation colors.

Perhaps a script could be created to iterate over all the nations, determine a
nation color based on the nation's flag, while also keeping the number of
color collisions to a minimum, then write that color back to the nations
ruleset file.
