According to the ISO Online Browsing Plarform the code TB is currently Unassigned.
But looking at this page : https://vec.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-1, Tibet is referenced as TB

Maybe this code would be fine to use.

@PoGo606 lol... check this。。。
http://www.iso.org/iso/home/store/catalogue_tc/catalogue_detail.htm?csnumber=63546
or
http://www.unece.org/cefact/locode/subdivisions.html ,
no Tibet in ISO_3166-1 ,you are liar,

顺便说一句。悄悄的在wiki上面夹带一些假消息,然后大肆宣扬,有意义吗?或者说这样的钱,你赚得不亏心吗?

@okzhu
The wikipedia page I'm quoting is saying otherwise.
It appears that the TB is referenced in ISO_3166-1 but not in ISO_3166-2, strange...

@lipis Do you have any concerns about using the TB for the Tibet flag ? Or shall we use another code ?

@okzhu Look, I'm not trying to have a debate whether the TB is official or not.
All we need here is a suitable code to use for the Tibet flag in the library :)
Do you have any recommendation on this matter ?

'bo' is the 2 character language code for Tibetan, but that is Bolivia in the country code..
So, the actual value is CN-54 (as Tibet is now a region of China). cf. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:ISO_3166_code_China_Tibet

Hi @lipis

Good to see you here!

We're considering using your nice flags icons in Piwik core :-)

FYI In @piwik we're adding Tibet with country code ti and this flag: matomo-org/matomo@50ae36c

Flags are political. There will be some (such as okzhu above) who object to the idea of depicting the Tibetan flag as it is considered (by the Chinese Communist Party) representative of the Tibetan Freedom movement.

However, the Tibetan flag serves many purposes - it's very much a symbol that represents the Tibetan culture and community both within and outside Tibet - without any furtherance of a political agenda. Needless to say, as the current government of China has decided to denigrate the Tibetan flag, they would not consider it as representative of the Tibetan Autonomous Region as marked by the region code CN-54.

Am I personally in favour of adding the Tibetan flag? Definitely so. Will you get stick from China if you do? Most likely.

I would like to add that as soon as you added Northern Ireland, you extended the set to include regional flags. The official flag for Northern Ireland is the Union Flag, (popularly known as the Union Jack) which is the same as the GB flag. Bearing that in mind, the use of a flag for Tibet would be acceptable within your current boundaries.

I come from China. I do not think politics should be included in any code. Tibet is a part of China. The Tibet flag is a national flag. If you have time to look at the history of Tibet and go to Tibet, it is a beautiful place, welcome to China.
wiki Tibet flag and please close this issue.

@ruoru 妈的。贼。他妈的恶心。上面还说什么流行。。我还说 is 的旗 也流行啊。作者其实已经关闭了。并且已经说明了 这个lib 依据的是 ISO 3166-1-alpha-2 这个。莫名其妙的要一些其他的旗子。其实放不放上去。根本就是政治问题。和自己的身份认同的问题。既然作者说了是 ISO 3166-1-alpha-2 那有个屁的好说的。要么叫作者改描述。然后作者想加什么旗子就加什么旗子。这群家伙在这里bb的没完。

你能看到这个issue的状态是open的状态,因为这个旗子是跟国旗放在一起的,当然不行了~

@MrBenGriffin

China is different from Northern Ireland, and i do not argument some politics in code.
