We're re-building this app for a client and he already has several language choices, including: English (US), English (UK) and English (AU) as well as Spanish (Spain), Spanish (Latin America). Of course we're going to narrow it to English and Spanish, but wondering if there's some easily recognizable icon or concept, at least for English language.
As we're at it, I've used a football (soccer) ball for Spanish and an oval ball (American football/rugby) for English before and it worked like a charm (kids toys), the reference is automatic. However, this is for another kind of business, so while I don't mind using a metaphor or lateral symbolism, it needs to be more "global", so to speak. But mentioning it just in case it is of help.
EDIT: Since this question seems to be kind of conflictive, I want to make clear I want to know if there's an answer for this, not on ways to do it differently, I know those ways, I want to know my SPECIFIC QUESTION and nothing else. Answers could be yes or no, with an explanation or example. Everything else not related to the exact question goes on anyone's subjectivity. Although I could be interested on subjective views on some scenarios, I'm not interested in this specific case.
