Quick Flag

Resolves IP address to ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 two-letter country code and name and displays country flag image if required.

Quick Flag resolves IP address to ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 two-letter country code and name using ip-countryside generated database and displays country flag if required. In contrast to other IP to country solutions this one allows you to create and update database your self using 5 Regional Internet Registrars (RIR) databases: AFRINIC, APNIC, ARIN, LACNIC and RIPE and ip-countryside open source application that does the work of generating database for you. You can also update IP to country database automatically with single click or schedule weekly automatic updates.

Big thanks to Markus Goldstein for ip-countryside project, weekly database updates and automatic update server used in the past. To offload Markus server, database updates are currently generated by me and stored inside GitHub repository.
