"Strawberry" is presumably flavoured (in which case, it shouldn't be used for vaginal intercourse as the sugars in flavours can contribute to yeast infections), but I don't know what the others mean.

What you want to check is that they have the BSI kite mark, they haven't passed their use-by date, and that they don't have spermicide (which can cause irritation).

The Strawberry, being flavored, can be used for oral sex (it's important to use condoms for oral sex since oral sex carries STI risks).

Since the condoms say, "certified to international standard" it should mean they are up to standards to use to protect you from pregnancy and STI transmission as long as you use them correctly.

Check out or article on proper condom use to be sure you'll use them to help best prevent breaking: A Simple Condom Primer
