    Hi,

    Unfortunatelly, this feature is not in JotForm. The special property of Drop down box like Country(Nationality) are simply predefined lists to make it a lot easier to create specific themed forms.
    The special lists are not associated or link on any other data at all.
    You can probably do something similar using the conditional logic on the form to show/hide image fields/html with flags associated to the drop down lists. But with the number of countries/flags, this could be impractical for the form to be used in such way. 

    Thank you for considering JotForm. Please inform us should you have other inquiries.

    Hi,

    In addition to jonathan's answer, I have clone one of your form and use conditional logic on the form.

    If you like what I did, feel free to clone it.

    Try choose United State, Abkhazia, Jordan, Afghanistan, Albania and Algeria as sample with their country flag.

    Thank you!

    Here's a guideline on how to add image and link with country:

    1. Download the image of the country from the internet then save it in to your desktop

    2. Go to POWER TOOLS then choose and drag Image tool in to your form

    3. Once you hit the NEXT button of image wizard click CHOOSE FILE then UPLOAD FILE

    4. Resize image width: 100 height: 50

    5. Click Properties icon then select Shrink

    6. Click Setup & Embed then choose Conditions icon

    7. From you Condition Wizard select Show/Hide a form field then click Next button

    If Country field Equals To American Samoa

    Then Show Image Field

    Hope you find it helpful and informative. 

    Please let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thank you!

    Err... Just FYI, there's no such place as Barbaados. It's Barbados. I oughta know because I'm a Bajan! (The flag is spot on, though :)

    Something just struck me: In order to avoid confusion when setting up the conditions, as each flag's image is inserted into the form, change its label from "Image" to the name of the country to which the flag belongs:
