Wrong Flag For Russian?

So since Russian recently became available on mobile, I couldn't help but notice that Russian flag was a bit wrong? I don't know if it's only me or if it's really an actual mistake, just wanted to point it out. :)

Here is a screenshot I took of my profile on mobile;

It's not "a bit wrong", it's just wrong.

It's actually the flag of the Netherlands. All of the flags are presented vertically, not horizontally.

That's what I thought too. All in all, whichever perspective you take, white should never be in the middle :P

That's obviously a mistake. The white is not supposed to be in the centre. If they wanted to make it more noticeable, I guess they could've just added an outline to the white part of the flag. Unfortunately there's nothing we can do about it, so I hope Duo fixes the mistake soon.

I reported this as a bug, there's a higher chance the Duo staff will notice it there. :)
