Restrictions on using flags, emblems and insignias
I am working on a videogame which involves recognising flags, emblems and insignias. I’ve been getting public domain images from Wikipedia. I don’t know much about the laws surrounding flags etc but I’ve noticed some of the flag images are accompanied by the text “This image shows a flag, a coat of arms, a seal or some other official insignia. The use of such symbols is restricted in many countries. These restrictions are independent of the copyright status.”
I was wondering if you knew much about these kinds of restrictions and whether they might apply to my situation (or whether you could point me towards any resources on this which could be useful).
(I originally posted this here - http://wikibanderas.com/question/welcome-to-wiki-flags-forum/ - but this seems like a better place. I found it a bit confusing because the forum keeps switching into Spanish)
Hello, first of all I apologize for the language issue, I'm trying to solve it but I'm not lucky. On the subject of rights of the images I can recommend a tool from the same google images, if you select tools and then use rights, will show you images with or without rights or free to distribute.

When you have the finished game you will show us? 😉
I hope it helps!
