@Meta-Chuh Hi Because of TaiWan problem, Taiwan’s flag is different from mainland China, and We often say Chinese means China ,so we think it is not appropriate to use the Taiwan flag to represent Chinese.
This is China (People’s Republic of China) 's flag:
This is taiwan’s flag:

Maybe the author is demonstrating his personal opinion on the conflict on purpose.

Np++ is a good software. But we believe that it is not appropriate to use a national flag to represent all countries that use the language. And we think when referring to a language, general standards should be used like zh-cn or zh-tw . A good software should not cause ambiguity

It seems the author has decided to do it the way it currently is. Best to let it go.

Racism and arrogance about China has imperiled the brand.
Use this flag, this is the original version of the modern Chinese flag.

Language should not have a nationality, Traditional Chinese mostly is used by Taiwan and HongKong, the contributor should be from Taiwan. Someone should translate this into Simplify Chinse and post it and use whatever Flag they prefer to use.

I understand that, the author has complete freedom to decide which flag should he use. But i want to stress that Taiwan has always been one part of China, and it’s so confusing to show a province’s flag instead of the country’s flag.

There are two variants of Chinese, the simplified one mainly used in Mainland and the traditional(inherited) one in other regions. It obvious that the two variants should be presented by different icons considering different adopting regions. While it is not suitable to use Hong Kong SAR flag here because it is not a national flag and Hong Kong is not equivalent to the word “Mainland”, in most cases Traditional Chinese is represented by the national flag used in Taiwan.(For me it is the flag to Republic of China rather than that to Taiwan)
The question is the traditional variant is simply called “Chinese” with Simplified Chinese and the flag of PRC after it. So the author maybe preferring the traditional variant and think only this could represent Chinese.
Again in most cases, using the flag to ROC(Taiwan) for region differentiation is common and practical. This measure may be doubtful in Mainland but this is an international website.
I come from mainland China, and I love traditional Chinese.
