I didn't know the convention. I made a terminal keyboard because
that is what I use most, and I have my doubts about dictionaries.

The reason I used the ABC overlay was simple - the QWERTY overlay
obscured so much of the flag, it was hard to see what flag it is.
Maybe it can be made more transparent, or use QWERTY written with
a thinner/smaller font?
