The fix in [7873deb] doesn't entirely resolve the issue with .svg files not being served correctly.

On older Apache servers, there is no mime-type defined for svg+xml.

On Ubuntu 12.04, the Apache server's "magic" file expects the header to conform to:

0   string      \<?xml
>38 string      \<\!DOCTYPE\040svg  image/svg+xml

This ticket is to update all .svg files to have the following header:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><!DOCTYPE svg  PUBLIC '-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.1//EN'  ''>

Currently, the UserCountry .svg files have:

<?xml version="1.0" ?><!DOCTYPE svg  PUBLIC '-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.1//EN'  ''>

while logo.svg has no header.
