Remove country flag for localization -- racial sensitivity

We are in the midst of setting up a Spanish localization in Populi. In a conversation today it was mentioned that associating a country flag with a language can be offensive to particular groups. For example, we associated the Mexican flag with our Spanish localization yet not all Spanish speakers are Mexican -- just like not all English speakers are from the US.

One possible and simple solution would be to remove the flags entirely and just have the name of localizations listed. Or maybe put a colored dot or symbol next to localization options to distinguish them. Would something like these options be doable?

Thanks for considering.
