please can somebody help me to remove the american flag in my menu bar?? i'm not american & have come to detest much of what that flag represents. it's a small thing, but... i have a japanese keyboard attached to my iMac running os x.2.5 & so need to use the american (roman) settings under system preferences > international > input method. i untick every other input method & the flag goes away. fine. except when i restart, the bloody flag is back again. so back to system preferences > international > input method & the british flag is ticked along with the american one. why? i made the switch in jan & i still feel like a complete newbie. any help would be much appreciated.
