Why is Portuguese represented on Duolingo using the flag of Brazil rather than the flag of Portugal?Edit
We chose the US and Brazilian flags because we teach those variants of the languages, because they have the overwhelming majority of the speakers, and because they are the variants that most people want to learn (sorry chaps!).
