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)

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)

New images of (former) British municipalities[edit]

Red x.svg StaleUser: Perhelion 19:16, 4 July 2014 (UTC): Continued here w:Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Heraldry_and_vexillology#British_coats_of_arms_needed (wish of requesting user)

Article(s): nl:Medway (Engeland) (and the other 18 languages), nl:Coat of arms of Medway (I am working on this article), nl:Coat of arms of Rochester upon Medway (I am working on this article), nl:Chatham (Kent) (and the other 19 languages), nl:Coat of arms of Chatham (I am working on this article) Request:

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)

Chain of office of papal chamberlain[edit]


Article(s): en:papal chamberlain, articles on papal heraldry, as element in individual COAs etc.


An SVG drawing of the chain of office would be great. The chain is the chain of office of a papal chamberlain (with papal keys and tiara). For existing drawings of the keys and tiara, see Category:Coats of arms of the Vatican City. Msbmt (talk) 22:03, 4 June 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)
Historically blue has been a female color. And I doubt the boys = blue; girls = pink thing is enshrined anywhere in US law, it’s just a preference of some hospitals. By your logic we’d have to edit every map on Commons to make Great Britain red.—Love, Kelvinsong talk 00:01, 28 December 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)

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)

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)

Thanks, Goran tek-en! Overall, your design seems to be closer to the official one than the one by AlexTref871 currently at File:Flag of Nizhny Novgorod.svg. However, maybe it would be better to make black parts darker, and the joints above the hooves a bit more pronounced? YLSS (talk) 11:38, 14 April 2015 (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)

Graphist opinion(s):

Stock-brush-red.svg Request taken by Fred the Oyster (talk) 02:26, 30 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)

Fashion Ilustrations for Costume Designs.[edit]


2 Requests
  1. Can someone look over the basic form, and tidy up any anomalies in the SVG?
  2. In respect of the costume design (which I drew from the form, can someone produce a better version, which could be used to potentially support costume design materials, for costumes based on the basic design shown? ( It would also be nice to have the archetypical 'sister' maids to accompany it. --Sfan00 IMG (talk) 13:13, 25 October 2014 (UTC)

Pre or post-op? --Fred the Oyster (talk) 16:34, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
Nominally, pre, but with a bust form in use.. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 16:39, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
Without wanting to be thought of as politically incorrect (which I am most of the time), I'd suggest flattening out the curve of the butt, increasing the shoulder and chest width marginally, the same with the thighs, reducing the bust, also marginally and maybe introducing a slight groin bulge (a straight forward curved path like the eyebrows could do that). The face could stay the same as that's purely cosmetic anyway. Mostly it could be done with the existing SVG and just moving the relevant anchor points in or out to taste. I took out most of the cusp points and replaced them with curves so it should be relatively easy to do without introducing too many distortions or angular points. I'd volunteer to do it, but I'm right in the middle of a couple of larger jobs (one that's already been delayed a couple of weeks) --Fred the Oyster (talk) 17:07, 25 October 2014 (UTC)

Pattern Uploaded[edit]

3. I've uploaded a basic pattern for the 'French' Maid design. It will need some tweaking before it's directly usable on fabric.. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sfan00 IMG (talk • contribs) 22:43 26 October 2014 (UTC)

As I said, I can't do anything at the mo', but I can recommend a couple of techniques that will make life a lot easier for you when doing vector graphics. These are especially useful when doing symmetrical shapes that have curves.
  • If it's a pair of things you need to do like legs or arms. just do one of them, then when that's done to your satisfaction reflect it, et voila you have matching legs. Likewise, when you have a symmetrical shape like a face, only do half of it. Again when you are satisfied with that half, reflect it then join the two halves together. This way all the curves will match on both sides instead of struggling to get the bezier curves identical.
  • If you want to get things to fit inside another shape, e.g. the fishnets in the diagram above. There are two ways in which you can do it.
  • Either design the leg the way you want it and use it as a clipping path to contain the fishnets so nothing goes outside the lines of the leg.
  • The other alternative if you aren't too sure about clipping paths/masks is to use pathfinder operations, i.e. use one shape to cut out a section of another shape to create a new third shape. E.g. The legs and the fishnets. Now I'm not sure how the exact procedure goes in Inkscape, but it will be close to this... 1. create the leg. 2. create the fishnets. It doesn't matter how big so long as it's wider and taller than the leg. Then copy and paste a copy of the leg on top of the fishnets then subtract the leg from the fishnets (ie all that's left of the fishnets was what appeared inside, intersected, the leg shape) so that only the fishnets remain. Those fishnets will now exactly fit the inside of the leg so all the tiny nooks and crannies will fit and there won't be any gaps or protrusions.--Fred the Oyster (talk) 23:57, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

@Rezonansowy: Is this getting close? Admittedly the main colour of the halo will take some trial and error to take into account of the opacity, but it's late and I'm tired.--Fred the Oyster (talk) 00:13, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
@Fred the Oyster: It's much better, but not similar yet. Could you invite someone else to work on it? Thanks! --Rezonansowy (talk) 11:42, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
I think, this logo should be deleted from Commons. It's officially registered in U.S. Copyright Office, so it's does meet the threshold of originality(the complexity of the accurate vectorisation also confirms this). We can't alter this logo, and Microsoft Corporate Logo Guidelines did't allow use it in way that Wikipedia does. Vectorization will not convert copyrighted logo to free-licensed.

Someone with ChemDraw help please?[edit]

I need a lot of images for the ton of work I've put into my page to go with the tables I've added:

[3] BME401a-f
[4] BMEnoncatalyticHapten394, BMEnoncatalyticHapten395, BMEnoncatalyticHapten396

I need a ton more, but this would be a start! Thanks Nagelfar (talk) 17:36, 15 March 2015 (UTC)


I don't know what operating system you run but Chemtool is a program on Linux and it has a test version for windows here. Into this program you can import files x.mol, edit if you need and then export as x.svg. At this link you can search and download x.mol files for each compound. If you don't run Linux I'm sure you can find a similar program for your OS.
It's much better if you download them your self as you have the different formulas and you know what is right or wrong.
Also if it's that many you are more motivated to do them all. --Goran tek-en (talk) 15:37, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

Cleveland Green Sox baseball cap[edit]

Cleveland Green Sox
I want to request the creation of an image of the baseball cap shown here. We have templates of baseball uniforms here, but it's beyond my ability with the gray background and the green piping. The team only played in 1913, so they copyrights have expired on the cap design --Oaktree b (talk) 02:53, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

@Evadb: I'm not the best person for this, so hopefully someone else will take this on, but I went ahead and uploaded a higher quality image of the medal.Offnfopt(talk) 00:16, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

This image was uploaded in a raster graphics format. However, it contains information that could be stored more efficiently and/or accurately in the SVG format, as a vector graphic. If possible, could someone please upload an SVG version of this image. Thanks a lot! --Boven (talk) 17:17, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

Conversion to SVG[edit]

I would like the 2 files to be created in SVG form, but I have zero experience on creating SVG images. If I could get someone with experience to help me out, that would be great. Dude00007 (talk) 22:31, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

DHS Secretary and Deputy Secretary flags in SVG[edit]

en:United States Secretary of Homeland Security
en:United States Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security
The DHS Secretary and Deputy Secretary now have positional flags, unfortunately, aside from the photographs, the only digital recreations I can find are from Flags of the World, which posts their designs only in GIF, which is hardly suitable for Wikimedia sites, since the standard for Wikimedia for illustrations is of course SVG. I was hoping someone could recreate these in SVG so we have high quality versions for Wikimedia use. --TUFKAAP (talk) 11:55, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, here is one more... Duke Univ. has two colors of blue a darker and lighter. The current color the file is using is wrong as the athletics uses the brighter color #0736A4. See the website for more information. The blue hex codes can be found here. --Corky | Chat? 13:32, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

Oxygen Icon[edit]

Why is the thumbnail empty? --Kopiersperre (talk) 14:01, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)
@Kopiersperre: I narrowed it down to #p mask, when you remove the mask it renders the image. I can't look further into it just yet, but thought I would point you in the direction of the problem. If I get a chance later on I might be able to dig more into it if someone else hasn't already.Offnfopt(talk) 15:12, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
Also I want to add that the svgcheck tool is good for testing SVG > PNG bugs/problems. It will render the SVG as a PNG using the same software as wikipedia/common so you can test without having to upload to commons.Offnfopt(talk) 15:17, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
@Kopiersperre:I took a closer look at the markup and tried to come up with different workarounds but didn't have much luck. I'm still fairly new to SVG markup (only started 2 months ago, dabbling in my free time) so maybe someone else with more experience could figure a work around since RSVG is not rendering correctly. At this point there are two options: (I) Remove the mask - This would take away the transparent fade and make a circular arrow which would render in a PNG. The problem with this is it would make the icon look more like a refresh icon instead of undo. (II) The other option would be just leave it as is and maybe in a future update of the RSVG rendering software the problem will be fixed.Offnfopt(talk) 20:47, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
@Kopiersperre: Save it as plain svg and it will work, don't ask me why. --Goran tek-en (talk) 13:01, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
