Language orbs

This is orb of Nepal. Orb, as I understood this concept, is rounded symbol of something, simple and recognizable. While flags are traditionally associated with countries, a thought to represent languages with orbs came to me. I created some orbs and added them in ZIP archive you can download. Here are orbs of some big languages. Try to guess which languages do they represent. (In ZIP there is answer.)
There are 305 orbs in the ZIP for 295 languages. I listed all languages with ISO 639-1 code and all official languages. I also included some recognized languages, Venetian and Toonatopian whose flag I designed. This is my last deviation. I will upload my future works on imgur and list them here.

Very Nice! Thanks for adding Venetian!
Can I use your Venetian orb as id-image on forums?

I've downloaded it and I've check... there is Sardinian but not Venetian! (that there isn't an italian dialect but a real Language)…
