Is there a specific reason why the flag for Spanish on Tatoeba is the civil flag of Spain as opposed to the national flag?

National flag: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F...g_of_Spain.svg
Civil ensign (current flag for Spanish on Tatoeba): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F...28Civil%29.svg

Unless there is a good reason for this, I propose we change the flag for Spanish to the national flag of Spain.

This is how it would look resized to 30 px x 20 px

However, perhaps the Mexican flag might be more appropriate, if we are going to change the flag representing Spanish.
