Where does the wavy flags on https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/language_packs-25 come from?
Like https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/translation/svenska/
Some even have translated text on them.

There are just custom images uploaded by language pack's authors.

They seem to use the same style flag and logo and text on the flag that is sometimes translated like perhaps there is a template to create them.

Keep in mind that flags represent countries - languages don't have flags.

One language can be spoken in more than one country, one country can have more than one language

So, which flag would be the correct one for english? Or german? or spanish?

There are just custom images uploaded by language pack's authors.
At the time you will be submitting a language pack you will be able to upload an image which should represent that specific language, made by you or somebody else. There is not a phpBB's tool that can help you making that image, it's up to you and your graphics' skills.

Hey,

every language package author can upload screenshots, like for extensions in the CDB. So we just uploaded an image for the british english package:
wavy-flags.PNG

The flags of this page: https://www.phpbb.com/languages/ are created in: https://github.com/phpbb/website-assets
