In this article, we would like to present simple JavaScript version of list for most popular languages with codes, english names and associated flags. Some languages doesn't have country flags so it is necessary to use dedicated language flag.

In below code, when flag property starts with:

  • country- - it means we can use country flag to represent language (last 2 letters represent ISO 3166 country code, that full list as JavaScript class can be found here),
  • language- - it means there should be used unique flag that represents language.

Language list object example:

// ONLINE-RUNNER:browser;

var Languages = new function() {

    var list = [
