Workplace.SE is in a similar position. It has recently been suggested there to make country tags visually distinct, essentially so answerers actually see that the question is specific and don't jump in with answers that may not apply to the specific country asked about. The current top-voted answer suggests adding a stylized globe to Workplace country tags.
Question: should we also (try to) make country tags visually distinct? If so, which design would be useful?
Edit: At Workplace, StrongBad notes that this would also apply to other SE sites, and anyway, it would require SE development work. So I have asked the general question about visually enhancing country tags at Meta, linking here. We could still use this thread to discuss whether we would want to actually use such a feature if it is implemented.
