Not sure how good your php coding is, but the $_SERVER has a list of languages in the order of preference. Below is the code to get the two letter language code that is the 1st priority. Just add a if statement in the php template (I usually do not call files like this, I usually use the reference number, but easy for the example):

if($langCode == 'en') {$flagImg = "/files/1001/2001/3001/americanFlag.jpg"}
else if ($langCode == 'fr') ($flagImg = "/files/1001/2001/3001/franceFlag.jpg"}

$langCode = substr($_SERVER['HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE'], 0, 2);

Let me know if you need more help

My understanding of the question is that yukulelix is trying to figure out the language of the currently displayed page and not just the preferred language of the browser.
The code for that would be:
Loader::model('section', 'multilingual');
$lang = MultilingualSection::getCurrentSection()->getLanguage();

I was unaware of this model in internationalization. This is a cleaner solution and will give the same result as the current page. Thanks for informing me about this as well, PatrickHeck.

You can also find a full Language information (instead of en => en_GB)
Loader::model('section', 'multilingual');
    $lang = strtolower(MultilingualSection::getCurrentSection()->getLocale());
