Flags!

Just noticed this myself, but the release dates inside the Game Info boxes now show flags for the regions!

Example

To be precise (and an a-hole) the blue flag with yellow stars is for European Union but not all European countries belong to EU. For example Norway or Switzerland.

I guess there isn't really a flag for "Europe"...

I saw these yesterday and thought the same. Oh well, my guess is only we know this and some people probably didn't even know that flag existed let along who it represents
