NA Flags v1.15 & EU flags v1.1

  - New Feature: Custom Backgrounds
  - Update:  Removed banner-style Canadian flag
  - Update:  Added England flag

These are all pretty self-explanatory.  Everyone seemed to hate and loathe the portrait-mode Canada flag, so away it goes.  It was based on an actual banner that some reference photos showed (similar to American flag banners that might put the stars all the way across the top), but the general tone of the comments clearly didn't appreciate that.  It's gone now, as the customer is always right.

EU Flags gained the red-and-white flag of England, which was an oversight in the original release.  Sorry folks.

The Custom Backgrounds feature is using most of the same tech development as Aquarium's equivalent (which you can read about below), though it was interesting dealing with PreferenceActivity rather than with standard UI buttons.  Similar but not quite the same, and I'd been leaning on the load-from-XML implementation enough previously to not have to deal with it.
