    After the Arab spring, the Libyan knocked down the Qaddafi regime, and change the old politician name of the country (Libyan Arab Jamahiriya), to just Libya, and also change the Libyan flag Which it was just one color (Green), to new flag with three colors (Red & Black & Green).
    But WordPress.com Stats page still used the old Libyan name and flag.
    So Please help me to make wordpress.com change this big mistake of:
    1: The old Politician name (Libyan Arab Jamahiriya), to just (Libya).
    2: The old flag of the Qaddafi regime (The Green one), to the new Libyan flag which you can see on the Link: (Click here)

    We actually get our flags and map data direct from Google’s database and are not able to make changes ourselves.

    Mr macmanx
    Thank for your fast answer, which I think it is wrong.
    If you go to Google flags page, you see the new Libyan name and flag on that page.
    So be brave Like the Libyans who changes the biggest dictator regime, and may be with one or two lines of codes, you change that big wordpress.com mistake, that mistake which makes all the Libyan users of wordpress.com so angry, because they still seeing the old name and flag of Libya on your site.
    So please try to make the Libyans more happy by making that changes.
    Thank You

    Ok, thank you for bringing that to my attention. I’m not sure why Google is still providing us with the old details in their IP location data, but we’ll look into it.

    Hi, Abdulrazig Almansori:

    Thanks much for the report!

    Pursuant to ISO Newsletter VI-11 (http://www.iso.org/iso/nl_vi-11_name_change_for_libya.pdf) we’ve changed the country name to ‘Libya’.

    We also updated the flag icon to represent the flag currently utilized by the United Nations (http://www.unis.unvienna.org/unis/pressrels/2011/unisvic184.html).

    It may take a while for the flag to update — clearing your browser’s cache should help.

    Best,
    ~Jeff
