Historic (1981) UK Road signs[edit]



I note these scans are B/W. It would be nice to replace the B/W diagrams with appropriate color vector diagrams, so that they can be included in a future Wikisource transcription. --Sfan00 IMG (talk) 13:52, 9 November 2013 (UTC)

Rancagua's coat of arms[edit]

Article(s): en:Rancagua, es:Rancagua, and many others.


There is a coat of arms of Rancagua city in Commons, but it's very different from the original ones; this one and that one. Let me know if you could modify it to look more like the original ones, or re-create them. Best, (and sorry for my bad english). --Warko (talk) 20:21, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

You show two different images as one original. So I have to ask which one would you like?
As I understand you want us to add the two images to one and that one would not be like any one of them and how should it look... You have to provide us with one look and then we can tell you if we can do it. --Goran tek-en (talk) 20:01, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
This one is the real coat of arms of the city, the other one is the coat of the Municipality. --Warko (talk) 00:32, 31 January 2014 (UTC)


I didn't know where to ask about this, but since many heraldry interested people contribute here, I try here:

What would a blazon in English for File:Berenberg COA.svg look like? The German language blazon is: "Im goldenen Felde auf einem grünen Schildfuß ein nach rechts aufgerichteter schwarzer Bär mit goldenem Halsband, in den Vorderpranken einen grünen Zweig haltend" Vanasan (talk) 12:35, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

Have you looked for this section: en:Blazon#Grammar? (at the image-comments)
But yes, many most of this CoA-English-Nobility are really poorly documented about their blazon ...
... looks as if you have more to investigate in the (web-)references of each CoA!

National emblem of France (UN variant)[edit]

Article(s): National emblem of France


I searched Commons and Wikipedia for a vector image of the French emblem (UN variant) and all I could find is that version without the Legion d'Honneur plus some minor differences. I think a more precise vector version should be created and uploaded separately. Thanks in advance.--Carnby (talk) 21:10, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

Pleas create all three new, as I haven't found any of them, or please show me where I can find the three images. -- Dqfn13 (talk) 20:39, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
Any body who cares to react? This section is here for nearly a month and nobody has reacted! I've only added the Dutch articles, but there are many other languages with the articles about the places.
@Dqfn13: Please try to give this to an Heraldry project like en:Wikipedia:WikiProject Heraldry and vexillology or similar (because also "graphist only" does almost a bad job here). But anyway I'm also not sure about the permission here, most of this are declared as "Picture used with permission, do not reproduce." So this is your reason for the SVG, because we can get permission? -- Perhelion 13:55, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
Hi Perhelion, svg is, in my opinion, better then jpg. Thanks for the tip about the heraldry and vexillology project, I'll try there. Dqfn13 (talk) 15:57, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
No reaction on en.wikipedia either... maybe the coats of arms are to difficult or are they not interesting enough? Dqfn13 (talk) 15:33, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
As Perhelion remarked above, there are serious concerns about the copyright of these images. Having this in mind there will no one wanting to spend many hours on the artwork that is deleted shortly after publication. -  Maxxl² - talk 15:21, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
I wrote new... so there won't be an issue of copyright as the images will be slightly different if you make them completly new. So copyright is on the .jpg drawings themselves. Dqfn13 (talk) 20:07, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

 Not done User: Perhelion19:21, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

If not done sticks I'll ask somebody else to make them for me, from scratch, like the Coat of arms of The City of London, which is also on that site. People are affraind because they want to copy the original file, instead of creating a completly new arms. Dqfn13 (talk) 20:09, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
As anybody can see, it can be done from scratch. This file is online since early July! The differences are big enough not to be copy right violations. If nobody else will do the same I'll ask Archmedus to do the other two even though he's not familiar with the English rules of heraldry. File is also placed on City of Rochester-upon-Medway, and nobody has complained. Also the owner of told me the files are always free as the arms are always PD. Dqfn13 (talk) 09:46, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
If you won't do it I'll get someone else to do it? Really? That's the way you want to get someone to do you a favour? What are you? 15? --Fred the Oyster (talk) 10:18, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
No, just fed up with this... I've done my request months ago (April), given proof images are legal to use (July) and nobody ever asked me what I wanted or how I think it can be done legal... Only two or three reactions: ask on enwiki and: not legal can't be done because of restrictions on the given website... I know enough, this section can be removed, I'll ask a creator who does want to help even though this isn't his expertise. Dqfn13 (talk) 21:55, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
Boo-hoo. no-one here owes you anything. There's a good old saying that says "to ask a question invites a refusal". I guess you just got yours. Frankly I'm not surprised given your attitude. There's also a pretty good chance that any further requests you make will go unanswered too. I certainly won't take on one, not with the attitude you've demonstrated. Seeing how this place is supposed to be educational, let me advance your education a little. Do not come here and demand anything, because if you do you will leave with nothing. We are not here at your (or anyone else's for that matter) beck and call, we are volunteers like you. We spend hours doing difficult art for bugger all money or anything else really, but maybe a bit of gratitude and some self satisfaction. However when people like you come along with your entitlement attitude we all end up with a sour taste in our mouths. My advice... download Inkscape or buy Illustrator and start learning to do your own. Maybe you'll then get an appreciation for just how difficult this sort of vector work is. As it is you don't currently appear to get it. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 22:47, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
I've written nearly 800 articles by hand (meaning no bot), i've used about 2 or 3,000 vector images in lists and articles. I know what I appreceate and that is the work you guys put in to them. I realy respect all of you. I only do not like it when people give me the feeling I'm being ignored, even though I asked it very politly at first. As you can see I've waited about a month before I asked the second time. I only started being pissed off after the needless refusal. And now... this item may be deleted, I'll write my articles without images or hope somebody else can help me. Dqfn13 (talk) 19:51, 25 September 2014 (UTC)
Tough shit. You got ignored, get over it. Just like everyone else here, you're not that important. Now grow up, stop spitting your dummy out and don't expect other people to do your bidding when you ask. So what if you got pissed off, keep it to yourself. No-one else cares, and they care even less when you have a go at the very people you are asking a favour from. $Deity helps us from the Millenial sense of entitlement. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 20:10, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

Uniform coats of arms for Croatian regions[edit]

Article(s): Regions of Croatia, Croatia proper, Istria, Dalmatia, Slavonia


Requesting new versions of the first three coats of arms above, modified to use the same escutcheon shape and the same shades of colour. Recommending the escutcheon shape and the blue from the fourth image, the coa of Dalmatia (which doesn't require modification). The third image (Istria) is raster, as there doesn't seem to be a proper SVG coa of the region (the heraldic goat isn't supposed to be walking as in here). Thanks in advance. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 13:19, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

Why? Anyway the Dalmatia escutcheon is not well formed, in addition Dalmatia coa is also unheraldic. I suggest to give it to an heraldic project. Perhelion     13:39, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
Well the three coas were all taken from various sources that do not relate to the actual regions. One is taken from the Croatian republic coat of arms, the other is the Istria County coa.. I.e. their shape is wrong for the purpose we have in mind over there, which is simply representing the regions with their respective traditional symbol, and it would be rather well for the coas to appear less haphazard.
Naturally, the escutcheon shape was merely a suggestion. A well formed escutcheon would be preferable to one that isn't such.
But please do clear that up. What do you mean exactly that the Dalmatia escutcheon isn't well formed? And what makes it unheraldic? Also, where precisely do you suggest I take the Dalmatia coa? --DIREKTOR (TALK) 13:57, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Reverse color choice for population pyramids[edit]

Category:Population pyramids of counties of the United States


Article(s): (example use)


Use a bot to reverse the color choice - blue for boys, and red for girls. There are hundreds and hundreds of these to fix. It would help, at the same time, to make the male/female symbols larger. --Delphi234 (talk) 18:41, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

Have you a plausible reason for this? Yes, it are for sure more as over thousands (I've already edited some). PS: If yes I would create a bot acc for this. User: Perhelion (Commons: = crap?)18:55, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
Well these are all United States counties, and since about 1940, the United States has standardized on blue for boys, pink for girls. Red is close enough. Having blue for girls will certainly be confusing. Delphi234 (talk) 04:29, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, no mass change without reputative source. User: Perhelion (Commons: = crap?)11:30, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
If this project were to be undertaken, I would also suggest simultaneously fixing font problems in these pyramid diagrams. Many of them use fonts that the Wikimedia Commons SVG-to-PNG graphics engine cannot render correctly. A 'bot could easily perform font substitution in the SVG file text. I've fixed a few dozen manually, but there are so many of them I eventually gave up. — Quicksilver@ 20:13, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

Color seatmap of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 961[edit]

Article(s): en:Ethiopian Airlines Flight 961


Please make a color seat map based upon Page 53, Appendix D 1 of 8, PDF document Page 59 of 99. If you have difficulty understanding the map, you may cross-check it with the lists of surviving and deceased passengers and surviving and deceased crew members:
  • Appendix E (Page 1 of 6), p. 61 (PDF document 67/99) - List of Surviving Crew Members (Table 1), List of Fatally Injured Crew Members (Table 2).
  • The passenger lists: Appendix E Pages 2-6 of 6, p. 62-66 (Pages 68-72/99 of the PDF document) - List of Fatally Injured Passengers (Table 4) on pages 3-6 of Appendix E, p. 63-66 - List of Surviving Passengers (Page 2 of Appendix E, p. 62)

According to the official report, 119 passengers and 6 crew members died, 38 passengers and 6 crew members received serious injuries, 2 passengers received minor injuries, and 4 passengers received no injuries. (p. 2, Page 8/99 of the PDF document)

These lists are in the same PDF file: --WhisperToMe (talk) 11:01, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, Fred! In regards to the seat designations: I'll repeat the numbers of the seats with survivors as seen in the official document Page 68/99. Seats marked "S" are seats of those with injuries (either minor or serious) and seats marked "N" are those with no injury. There should be only four "N" seats, and the other survivors are the "S" seats. However note that there seems to be discrepancies between the survivor list and the seat map! and When the seat map and passenger manifest conflict, use the seat map since my research suggests that the seat map is the best indicator of the actual seating arrangement when the plane hit the water
According to the seat map: The three cabin crew in the front died. In the back two cabin crew survived while the other two died.
The four "N" seats are 26D, 33F, 34D, 34E. The other survivors are "S" seats. The seats not having survivors are either unoccupied (Blank) or fatality seats (Marked with an "F").
NOTES A: Ethiopian Airlines seems to have marked 22C, 22D, 25G, and 34E as unoccupied seats (blank) on the seat map, but the manifest says they were occupied by survivors
NOTES B: Ethiopian Airlines seems to have marked 7F, 9C, 9E, and 10B as survivor seats (S) on the seat map, but I haven't found passengers in those seats on the manifest.
  • UPDATE: I understand why the discrepancy is in place. The passengers for 22C and 22D were Frank "Pancho" Huddle and his wife Chanya "Pom" Huddle. Huddle says he got a last minute upgrade to business class - So I think what happened was that the four seats were economy class passengers upgraded to business class at the last minute. In that case, please in case of a conflict between the passenger manifest and seat map, use the seat map
Possibly the cabin crew may have occupied some of the other seats: the jet only shows seven cabin crew seats but there were nine cabin crew on the flight
NOTE C: The manifest stated that the hijackers had occupied seats 25B, 31B, and 32C. AFAIK they were NOT in their seats when the plane crashed (at the time they were fighting the pilots and/or standing guard outside). But I don't think it was an error to show their seats as fatalities on the seat map.
NOTE D: The map stated that 7D and 29E had fatalities but I did not see a 7D or a 29E in the passenger fatalities manifest
NOTE E: The same seat is listed twice on the manifest for a fatality: 21E: Ahmed Ibrahim (Egypt) and 21E: CE Grace (Nigeria)
WhisperToMe (talk) 15:56, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, I'd uploaded this before I saw your extra comments. I'm taking a break from the computer for a short while but I'll get back to correcting the disparities. Also if there's anything else you want to me to change or add/take out then please let me know. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 18:40, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
It's okay. If you based it on the seat map alone, it's fine. I checked my research and found that the seat map in probability is more "up to date" than the manifest (I cross checked Frank Huddle's empty seat with the story of his last minute upgrade to business class). I do have: Requested corrections and additions: Passengers in rows 11-14 in seats A, B, F, and G were all dead. Seat 12B is unoccupied. Seat 21E had a fatality. The person in Seat 33A did not survive: He/she was a fatality. Also, please add the seat lettering: A, B, C, E, F, G for business class and A, B, C, D, E, F, G for economy class.
New request #1: Is it okay if you have French version? The French: Legende = Legend, Decès = Dead, Survivants avec blessure grave ou legère = Survivors with severe or minor injury, Survivants sans blessure = Uninjured, Siege un occupe = Empty - Seat map = Occupation des sièges par des passagers, Galley = Cuisine, avatory = Toilette , Flight attendant seat = Siège des agents de bord, Closet = Placard WhisperToMe (talk) 18:46, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
New request #2: By the way, if you want to do one more: PDF p. 60/99 (French: PDF p. 88/89) has another graphic showing the fractures in the airplane body. Are you interested in making a graphic on this one? Anyway, thank you so much for your help so far! WhisperToMe (talk) 19:04, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
I've done the French version as above, a couple of the legends you didn't translate so I let Google do the work. If I've got it wrong then please feel free to edit it yourself. It's only a text file file and all the wordage is near the bottom of the file and is easily changed. As for the other diagram. I can't do it right now, but if you don't get any other takers in the next couple of days I'll try to fit it in. I did use the seat plan for the entire thing as I was too busy messing with the graphics rather than crass-checking things. There is always the possibility that I added to the errors by getting my colours confused, so it may be worthwhile not accepting that I got it right the first time round! --Fred the Oyster (talk) 19:41, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Thank you so much, Fred! I really appreciate it! If/when you correct the colors for seats A/B/F/G of rows 11-14, 12B (empty), 21E, and 33A in both the English and French versions, please let me know so I can add the seat map to various Wikipedia versions. WhisperToMe (talk) 20:31, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
I've corrected the ones you spotted and a few others you hadn't! Oh the joys of copy and pasting allied with a bad memory. I've re-uploaded the corrected versions. Whilst I was at it I also tidied up some things to make them clearer and in the process lost the white background for the plane (just this minute noticed that. It's not that important so as I'm knackered now so I'll sort that in the morning.--Fred the Oyster (talk) 22:31, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
OCD is a bitch! All done. :) --Fred the Oyster (talk) 23:18, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Fred! One more thing: F/G of rows 11-14 should also be fatalities. For the French: Attendant seat = Siège des agents de bord. I think Closet is Placard but I'll ask a French speaker. WhisperToMe (talk) 03:12, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
Oops, I'd missed those seats. They changed colour as I'd accidentally grouped a series of seats with some further back down the plane and when I changed their colour... well you get the idea. :) Anyway, all sorted, along with the translations. I've also set the two documents up to look alike (view window) with the exception of the text. I don't know why I didn't do that before, it would have been far easier for me. Talk about a major brain fart! --Fred the Oyster (talk) 10:06, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
Thank you so much for your help! I really appreciate what has been made. Before these maps were made its likely the public wasn't aware of this and they had to hunt inside the document to find this information. Now it's been presented clearly and openly. I'm going to check with the Amharic (national language of Ethiopia) speakers to see if they are interested in making an Amharic version WhisperToMe (talk) 11:08, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Turkish flag[edit]

Article(s): Turkey, Flag of Turkey


Please insert the white hem that's supposed to be on the left of the flag according to [[en:Flag of Turkey#Construction|]]. It was added once but reverted for some reason. (The hem is present in this version, but according to that page the sizing of that image is wrong.) --Qzekrom (talk) 16:09, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

Is there proof for the white hem actually being a part of the flag? The "Construction" section of the EnWP article is unsourced, and while the government page sourced elsewhere in the article includes the same table of measures, it's not clear the "Uçkurluk" (translated as "hem") is actually part of the flag design. In fact the flag image on the government page does not include a white stripe at the hoist. SiBr4 (talk) 17:14, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

All done. All text is raw text and is easily edited with a text editor. It's all grouped in logical groups which are titled, so should anyone want to translate it then it should be easy. I really can't be arsed to use the switch facility in SVGs to make translations automatic from just one file, but should anyone want to do so I won't stand in their way. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 18:06, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

Thank you! I'll look for somebody to help get the translations for Korean and Mandarin Chinese. I'll let you know once I secure the translations. WhisperToMe (talk) 06:21, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

Unless there's any major text alignment issues, or text being moved then it's simplicity for anyone to replace existing text just using a text editor. I deliberately format all SVGs I do with all the text grouped together in one layer on top of everything else. This way if one were to open the file in a text editor all the text is grouped together (in editable form) in one block right at the end of the file. I find this to be a happy medium instead of me having to go through all the mither of setting up the switch facility (a way of automatically presenting the in your own language, depending on which language is setup in your Commons' user preferences). So ultimately I'm not required in the process for translation. Anyone can do it, and it's relatively easy to do it without needing any XML markup skills, at least on most of the SVGs I do. It's even easier to do if one uses a text editor that supports syntax highlighting like Notepad++ so that the raw text is highlighted and therefore easy to find.--Fred the Oyster (talk) 10:13, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

Flag of Nizhny Novgorod.svg[edit]

Article(s): A lot: all articles currently using the wrong version and theoretically all using the png version.


Flags of the city of Nizhny Novgorod (File:Flag of Nizhny Novgorod.png) and Nizhny Novgorod Region (File:Flag of Nizhny Novgorod Region.svg) have noticeably different designs of stags. Five years ago, a user took the stag from the SVG version of the Region flag and called it File:Flag of Nizhny Novgorod.svg – which was totally incorrect. However, by now it is used across all the Wikipedias... I have renamed that file to File:Flag of Nizhny Novgorod Region (simplified).svg, leaving a redirect for now. So I would appreciate if somebody made an svg version of File:Flag of Nizhny Novgorod.png and uploaded it at [1]; the coat of arms (File:Coat of arms Nizhny Novgorod.png) can be converted as well. An "official" image can be found at http://xn--b1acdfjbh2acclca1a.xn--p1ai/vlast/ofitsialnaya-osnova/gerb/ . Thanks. --YLSS (talk) 08:03, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Flag of Chinese Taipei Football team[edit]

Article(s): File:Flag of Chinese Taipei Football team.svg (en:Chinese Taipei Olympic flag#Other flags)


Chinese Taipei football team uses File:Flag of Chinese Taipei for Olympic games.svg now, so this page is redirect page. But This flag that replaces the Olympic rings with the taijitu was actually used in a period of 1981-2006, also used in FIFA's website until 2012(Webarchive). The probably same image

There are almost not any photos could prove the "team flag" was used as a national flag. It could just a flag for the team but not a equivalent of national flag.--Jitcji (talk) 14:45, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

Flag and Coat of arms of Kafr El-Sheikh Governorate[edit]

Article(s): More than 200 articles, most in Arabic Wikipedia


I request this flag to be SVG version, this is the official flag of Kafr El-Sheikh Governorate in North Egypt (official website). and make SVG coat of arms, it's the same design, just put the boat of flag in a circle (as colour of the boat), and background the same colour of background of the flag (example on the building)

Note: The correct colour of rice spikes (not green as PNG version) that same colour of the boat, as in governor's photo, and so simile design of spikes... Thanks a lot... --Faris El-Gwely (talk) 02:53, 27 September 2014 (UTC)

Will this do? There are differences with your png, such as the vertical stripes on the sail and the colour of the rings. The photo with the flag in tha background shows no stripes and the rings appear to be grey rather than yellow. I've also tried to match the colour of the boat with the flag, but it was hard to sample any one colour that matched properly. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 11:10, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Thank you for your great work. all colours true ... just I've a note, the color of sail is white. Is it possible to make episodes more dark more dark? and can you cut enlighten from the sea in left to be like right part (like this or this).
last request and sorry for inconvenience, can you make another SVG file and put the emblem inside a circle (colour of circle is the same colour as boat), this is coat of arms of governorate. Thank you for everything... Faris El-Gwely (talk) 14:03, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
I realise that we have a translation issue going on here and I apologise for not understanding your instructions properly. By "episodes", do you mean darken the rings on the sail? And by "enlighten" do you mean the 'highlights' on the bow and the stern of the boat? Do you want the left side of the boat to be a mirror image of the right? I'm guessing as I'm not getting what you are describing as "cut enlighten from the sea in left to be like right part". As for the CoA, that will be no problem once we get these little tweaks sorted --Fred the Oyster (talk) 14:16, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

Color blind versions of Ethnicity maps[edit]

Article(s): en:Detroit and many others


Is someone interested in making color-blind-friendly versions of the above images and others in Category:Race and Ethnicity by Eric Fischer? In en:Talk:Detroit#Map_of_racial_distribution_is_hard_for_colour-blind_people_to_understand a user requested making colorblind-safe versions of the Detroit image, so I forwarded this request here.

You may see guidelines on how to make a colorblind-safe image here: en:Category:Articles with images not understandable by color blind users --WhisperToMe (talk) 15:39, 27 September 2014 (UTC)

Flag request[edit]

Graphist opinion(s):

Thanks! Well done! But could you have another look the the Brest Voblast image, it seems there are stell same black at the right blue-red border as well as the red rectangulars. Look like a "shadow"

Nope, it's an optical illusion, most probably due to the way the display works with the red and blue pixels right next to each other. They represent the total opposites of the light spectrum that we can see. The only black strokes in the image are on the bull. It was probably that effect that the original artist threw in the original strokes to attempt to counteract that effect. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 20:36, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, it does seem skinny by comparison, but when I tried increasing thicknesses down at it's correct size (ie 10px x 20px) it looked a mess. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 13:33, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
I've tweaked it a little and is great. Thanks! --Rezonansowy (talk) 11:02, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
No probs, but could you save the file out as a "Plain SVG" rather than as an "Inkscape SVG" and re-upload it to cut down on the bloat? It's a PITA to do it manually. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 11:23, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
Edit: I have a little problem with ellipse's stroke, it should be a perfect circle. It looks OK in Inkscape, but on MediaWiki. --Rezonansowy (talk) 11:25, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
