A patch implementing this feature (except for rotating the label)
The plugin doesn't scale with the panel row size and tries to occupy the whole panel size. Also, the label is not rotated in the vertical mode.
*** Bug 9843 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Apologies for the delay. I pushed the changes that should take care of this to git master; it'd be great if you could test them out.
Hi. I also stumbled upon this bug and independently implemented a fix for it. However, this fix is something different from the one proposed by Andrzej, since it only affects the way plugin looks in "deskbar" mode. It also fixes the scaling of the flag icon, it is now scaled proportionally to the icon original size.
Unfortunately, the patch is not against the latest version in repository, but against the version 0.5.4.3 which is posted at plugin page.

Deskbar mode support
Adds "deskbar" mode support to the plugin (it occupies less vertical space). Fixes the text and flag icon drawing for this mode.
Vasily, the fix for this has already been backported; in fact, there is a currently open call for testing of 4.10_panel_support git branch, which includes this fix along with a bunch of others and is intended for xfce 4.8/4.10. If you have a chance, please test it out.
Fixed in 0.5.5
