Regional flag database.

https://github.com/flaghunters/Extra-Flags-for-4chan/tree/54d66a7b9e96b102e716eab32c1737a76d4a9b84/flags

Hello!

I'm a fellow flag collector! I'm very interested in your Flag Counter Pro.

I'm from another flag community located on the site 4chan.org (I don't recommend the site) known as /flag/ or /extraflags/ on their international board.

What interests me about your counter is the difficulty? Of obtaining regionals. As such 4chan only goes to the country level (it also uses maxmind db), so we have to use an browser extension to get regionals. However, that extension can't see the IPs of posts and only the country so it's up to the individual to choose a region. So my IP being in the US I can choose any US territory, but can't choose a Canadian territory.

Anyways, over the years various member have contributed to our regional database and we have thousands of regionals. Some go four level deeps. Example

Country>State>County>City.

Some places include "special Regions" that often can get us to 5 or even 6 flags.

I haven't looked into how regionals are added on flag counter, but we have a large database if you need them!

Re: Regional flag database.

As for Maxmind regions I found this

http://www.maxmind.com/download/geoip/misc/region_codes.csv

I haven't crosschecked however what flags we have to what maxmind has regions for, but would be willing to put in time to compile regional flags based off of maxmind database.

Re: Regional flag database.

I recommend you use  http://www.geonames.org/countries/  to find the regionals. This is what Maxmind uses.
Regarding going deeper that regional level, most countries do not go past adm1 (regional level), and even though some countries have regions not all have them as ISO yet.
