Which is fine, XML is really completely useless without namespaces...

because they mean completely different things.

That's an RSS resource.  FOAF files are a much more reasonable popular
application of RDF to look at.

I think DAML have country data in there CIA factbook scrape:
http://www.daml.org/2001/12/factbook/uk

is data on the UK
http://www.daml.org/2001/12/factbook/factbook-ont#
in fact already includes information on flags, you can just use this
namespace.
