This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.
Problem:double flags on and out my header!
Solution:i was able to add the language switcher by going to WPML->Languages->Add menu language switcher
if you wish to only have one flag showing then go to the menu language switcher -> click on the "pencil " icon and uncheck the box for Langue actuelle
The reason you were not seeing the language switcher was because there are no translations added yet, WPML needs the translations in order to show the switcher , a way to get around this is the following.
WPML ->Languages -> Lien vers l'accueil de la langue pour les traductions manquantes
and also you can go to WPML->Settings->Post Type Translations-> posts/pages -> Traduisible : utilisez la traduction lorsqu'elle est disponible ou revenez à la langue par défaut
NOTE : please contact your theme provider regarding the snippet they gave you and ask them to provide you with a way to complete remove them because they still show on the English side of your site...they have done this for users before.
