Maybe you turned off player avatars under the launcher?

If you have the avatars of other players turned off i assume you don't see the little display of the tag next to the avatar either.

Probably you have figured out the following information yourself meanwhile [...] anyway here it comes :->

If you want to show your tiny tag next to your avatar to others, you have to go to 'Menu --> Profile' and click on 'Add to tag display list', see the picture below.

There are two different elements. The button 'Add to tag display list' is responsible for the display of the tiny tag-thingy next to the avatar.
If you have more than one tag you can 'Clear tag display list' and decide which of your tags you "wear". The Maximum you can display next to your
avatar are three of these tiny 'flags', even if you have more than three tags.

If you uncheck 'Visible by other players' the tag is not displayed in the achievement-box either (you still see it there, but the other players don't).

I am not sure if turning P2P off does withhold the displaying of the tag. Since the tags are stored from Nadeo at
'http://player.trackmania.com/tags/000.png' there should not be an actual upload from the player involved,
but maybe you still have to have P2P activated. I did not figure that out yet :->

On the other hand maybe all your settings are right and it just takes a while.
