No, PD-flag is kind of deprecated. For FOTW images with proper licensing, the licencing terms allowed by the particular image author (such as Jaume Olle) should be stated in the image description page, while for FOTW images without proper licensing there is Template:FOTWpic, which generates the text seen below: AnonMoos 01:26, 22 September 2007 (UTC)
the following content you uploaded is not free and therefore had to be deleted:
The Wikimedia Commons (this website) only hosts media files which can be used for any purpose, including:
use in any work, regardless of content
creation of derivative works
See Commons:Licensing for the copyright policy on the Wikimedia Commons. Some other Wikimedia projects have different licensing policies. For example, the English Wikipedia allows fair use of sounds and photographs. This is not the case on the Wikimedia Commons: "fair use" materials are not acceptable here.
Please make sure that you only upload works you have created yourself, those which are out of copyright, or those for which you have the required permission for the work to be used in all the ways described above. Again, please read through Commons:Licensing, which is quite crucial to understanding how the Wikimedia Commons works. Thanks for your contribution, and please do leave me a message if you have further questions. --Davepape 20:35, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

I've tagged the image for deletion, in the same vein as the comments above. FOTW's licence is noncommerical, so its not compatible with Wikimedia Commons. Generally, if you found the image/other media on the internet, its not appropriate for upload. ButterStick 09:33, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
Image:Salisbury, Rhodesia COA.jpg has been marked as a copyright violation. The Wikimedia Commons only accepts free content, that is, images and other media files that can be used by anyone, for any purpose. For details on what is acceptable, please read Commons:Licensing. You can ask questions about Commons policies in Commons:Help desk.
The file you added will soon be deleted. If you believe this image is not a copyright violation, please explain why on the image description page.
If you created this image, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it, such as a copyright issue.
In all cases, please do not take the deletion request personally. It is never intended as such. Thank you!
