A Tale of Three Flags

I must protest at this blatant disfavouring of my nation!
If you go to the CN front page, and scroll down to the - still rather weirdly ordered - list of races and results, you'll notice something:
The Vuelta, which starts in Utrecht, has a Dutch flag.
The Giro, which starts in Budapest, has a Hungarian flag.
The Tour, which starts in Copenhagen, has a French flag! Last time I checked, Denmark had not - in fact - been invaded by France.

Consistency, people, consistency.

Also: It's Sønderborg, not Sønbergborg.
