You might try these: http://www.famfamfam.com/lab/icons/

The Silk icons are CC Attribution 2.5: "This means you may use it for
any purpose, and make any changes you like. All I ask is that you
include a link back to this page in your credits (although a giant
link on every page of your website really isn't needed, contact me to
discuss specifics). "

The Flag and Mini icons are public domain

The other icon sites I use are Icon Finder [1] and Tango [2].  The
licenses on the icons at Icon Finder I believe will vary, but might be
worth checking out.
