Select2 drop-down for countries, with flags

Delavnog’s Question:

Does somebody have an easy to use example of a country drop-down, with country flags, for Select2? I am about to implement one based on this suggestion, but I would prefer to avoid reinventing the wheel.

I was working on a similar problem and here is how I solve it.

(function($) {
    $(function() {
        var isoCountries = [
            { id: 'AF', text: 'Afghanistan'},
        //Assuming you have a select element with name country
        // e.g. <select name="name"></select>

            placeholder: "Select a country",
            data: isoCountries

I also have made a gist about it and following are the demos.
