The encoding of the Welsh flag

We have gotten requests for this, but the stumbling block is the lack of an
official N. Ireland document describing what the official flag is and
should look like.

“However, whilst England (St George’s Cross) Scotland (St Andrew’s Cross)
and Wales (The Dragon) have individual regional flags, the Flags Institute
in London confirms that Northern Ireland has no official regional flag.”

Should the N. Irish decide on a flag, I don't foresee any problem adding it.
