In the assets folder of this extension are a flags.png and a flags.css file which you can implement in your project template. We do not register these assets directly with the extension to keep it as flexible as possible.

Note: This widget get the languages from the extension Yii2 LocaleUrls. Therefore you may configure localeUrls first before you run the widget.
