Well, it can be used for anything the makers thereof say it can.
Trademark is if anything more restrictive in most ways - eg I don't
know any way you can 'publicize' trademark like you can copyright (eg
under CC licensing). I'm not sure how much of the copyright is owned
by the last person who actually drew this version, vs others who
contributed the ideas for it...

But yeah, a vector-format design would be definitely superior. I can't
open .svg though; maybe the google flag vendors can though.
