       Modern-Day Country Badges & Banners Pack
I had earlier seen a few packs with 5 or so national flags for badges and/or banners.
Usually the flags of the US, Canada, and a few of the most powerful European nations.
But there are many countries that had no pack, and I felt like making one with ALL 193 countries unanimously recognized by the UN as of April 19, 2008: this includes 192 members, and the Vatican.

Installation instructions:

WinZip: Open both zip files with WinZip and extract the files you want from Country Badges into your Dawn of War/Badges (for vanilla DoW or for Winter Assault) OR Dawn of War-Dark Crusade/Badges (for Dark Crusade) OR Dawn of War-Soulstorm/Badges (for Soulstorm) folder. 
Extract the files you want from Country Banners into your Dawn of War/Banners (for vanilla DoW or for Winter Assault) OR Dawn of War-Dark Crusade/Banners (for Dark Crusade) OR Dawn of War-Soulstorm/Banners (for Soulstorm) folder. 

Windows Explorer (where you just open zips like regular folders): Copy the files you want into the folders mentioned above. 
For those who don’t know, you copy by right-clicking on the file and selecting copy, and then go to the folder, right-clicking in an open space, and clicking paste.

A few things to note:

YOU DO NOT NEED TO HAVE ALL INSTALLED FOR ONE TO WORK; if you just want one country, copy just that one's

The badges are not flags; they are the coat of arms (or emblem used as such) of the country. Sweden, which has two Coats of Arms, uses its Greater.

The flags, in order to fit in the banner format, were rotated. The left side of the flag is on top. The only exception to this is Switzerland, as their flag wouldn't quite work like that. Their flag is centred with a gradient from each end so it fades into what background it's on.

All files start with 0 so that they won't be broken up by other badges, you'll see all country ones you chose and then all other badges/banners installed.

Each badge has the same filename as the banner of the same country; THIS IS INTENTIONAL. As the coat of arms is generally lesser-known, if you click on the banners button first and then badges, you'll see the flag of the country in the selection screen and get the coat of arms for it when you click.

The Jamaican Coat of Arms has a topless female on it; rather than desecrate a national symbol I chose to let it stay. It’s a small detail on a small part of your scheme, which you’ll be too distracted to stare at during the game.

This does NOT include countries like Taiwan or Kosovo or Northern Cyprus because there is debate over their sovereignty, and this includes only fully-recognized nations.

There are no screenshots, but if you wish to see them before download/installation, go to these sites: 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gallery_of_sovereign-state_flags for flag pictures
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gallery_of_sovereign_state_coats_of_arms for coat of arms picturess

If you wish to include some of these files in your mod, you're allowed to as long as you give credit to me (internet name: "Ijtzoi"). I WILL NOT give permission for edits to these, however. Don't desecrate flags or symbols.
