Hi, there
I've created a dropdown language selector and entered the abbreviation supplied online by WP for Afrikaans (AF) but the flag displayed isn't the flag of south africa. Can you help me correct this quickly?

Thanks by advance,

Hello Olivier,

You must have created a new custom language for Africaans because I do not have it included among the provided "Site Languages" for selection when you click on "Add/Remove languages" correct?

If so, you can upload your own flag under "Edit languages". Have you tried that?

Hi, Sarah
No not yet. Is there a specific format and where do you guys are getting yours so I get the same size. Otherwise, it might look a little weird.

Thanks by advance for your assistance, Sarah

That's OK Sarah. I found a library of flags and it looks fine. Thanks for your support.

You probably used af.png which is Afghanistan.
You should use za.png for Afrikaans (South Africa)
