I'm using libreoffice draw and I was wondering if this feature 
exists somewhere. I want to make a rectangle of a certain size. 
Inside this rectangle I want to show a flag of a country. The image 
of the flag is from google images (it's a jpg or png image) and I 
want libreoffice draw to adjust the image size to the rectangle size 
automatically so the image fills the rectangle correctly.So I want 
to make this drawing for all countries and don't want to resize the 
image myself each time. I want to assign a new image so it's 
automatically resized correctly to fill the entire rectangle. Is 
this possible in libreoffice draw and how? I'm a beginner so I need 
step by step instructions.

You don't say why you are choosing to create a drawing (Draw) 
document rather than some other type. What else does the document 
contain, apart from the flag images? If this is text, you might 
prefer to create a text (Writer) document instead. Use a table or 
tables to lay your text document out. I think you will find that any 
image pasted into a table cell will be automatically scaled to fit 
the width of the cell, which achieves just what you require. Note 
that table borders can be adjusted so that they either show or not in 
different places; the table structure does not need to show at all in 
your finished document, if that is what you prefer.

Tables are described in Chapter 13 of the Writer Guide.

I trust this helps.
