I definitely would not do that. If you use an American flag for the English version, you'll alienate people in the U.K., Australia, New Zealand, etc. if you use a U.K. flag for English, you'll most likely alienate all the non-U.K. English speakers. (Not to mention all the U.S. people who don't know what a U.K. flag looks like. Note- as an American, I get to knock Americans who are internationally challenged.)
The "trick" is to use more than just the one flag for "English"..use multiple flags depending if you are trying to hit US or UK ( AU or NZ or CA will "usually" use UK English ) ..BTW other languages also have their "variants"..Mexican "SP" is not the same as Spanish "SP" ( not always Castilan[sic ?]* ..Spain has its regions too ;)) nor is it the same as Argentinian "SP" etc etc..
Likewise Quebecois French and Metro French ..
Hence Flags..because they also cover "variations"..
Waiting for Lucy to find this thread and set us both to rights.. ;) ..
*Helen will correct ( me on this speelling* ) ..Spanish.. "Spanish" has many regional "variations" ) as do all languages.. :) ..
