ive looked and looked but i cant find anything to help your cause! All graphics including photo jpegs have (PPI) Pixels Per Inch. If you enlarge the original image then it will pixelate. Basically the pixels per square inch reduce as a result of resizing and consequently the image quality suffers.
Could you not just use a larger flag image to begin with?

Some programs handle the resizing of images better than others. I'm not sure how well fireworks does the resize. You might get better results if you export the image, perform the resize using another program and then nisert it back in.
IrfanView http://irfanview.com is one of the best programs I have found for resizing images. I believe it does it better than Photoshop, and it's free. So that's cool.
On the other hand, unless it's a special image you've made yourself, it shouldn't be too hard to find images of flags that are the right size for you, as krak_d suggested.
