It's funny the eye/brain tries to compensate for the hue change. :)

I think it's a little forced. At first sight, the flags look old and dirty. Besides i'm not quite sure yellow is a colour you relate with Germany. Maybe if they put the german flag's colour, it would be easily understood. At least for me.

ok i think i have to clarify. this brandpromise is to teach proper english to germans. so i think those posters will only appear in germany.

jesus, again a flag-idea! and in this case (for this client) quite expected and boring.
INLINGUA deserves better! (didn´t they win a film-lion with this client a few years ago???)

Wordnerd... I don't think this would work for Belgium... our English is flawless. Or do you say 'flewless'. No, think it's 'flowless', right?
At first sight I thought the white colour in the flags was just a little... yellowish :)

The yellow looks like a dirty washed out white, bad photoshop job. Maybe if you had of actually made a flag out of material it would have looked better
