Seal of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General[edit]

Article(s): Office of Inspector General, Department of Veterans Affairs (Q60172390)

Please adapt the SVG seal of Veterans Affairs into the seal of the Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General. The original GIF appears to be a scan of a metal lapel pin (or similar) or a photo of a wall mounted seal. The proportions and minimal coloring of the inner seal match the SVG. Please name the output File:Seal of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General.svg. --William Graham (talk) 17:25, 28 December 2018 (UTC)

Heraldry request[edit]

Article(s): Mgr Thomas Adamson

Much obliged if an image of Monsignor Adamson's arms could be created?

These are blazoned : Barry argent and azure three chaplets of roses gules within a bordure vert.

Mgr Adamson's arms should also be surmounted by a monsignor's chapeau and displayed upon the badge of the Order of Malta. (The above images are just by way of example of the relevant heraldic components and to be used at the heraldic artist's discretion.)

    at a quick glance - the only problem I see is you missed the word "BELGIUM" If you just create that the same way you did "AIRLINES" it should be fine. -- Begoon 07:30, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
@Begoon: Can you identify the font?--Jeromi Mikhael (talk) 07:56, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
Not off the top of my head - it's not a million miles from just Arial, bold, italic, but the kerning, E, G and M would need a bit of 'fiddling' if you use that. Failing that, I don't see much harm in tracing it. -- Begoon 08:07, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
There's also a bigger, cleaner png you could work from here. -- Begoon 08:23, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
  • OK, ✓ Done - it's not perfect - feel free to tweak or improve it. The font turned out to be closer to Myriad Pro Bold Italic, which still needed a bit of 'adjustment', so anyone who can match that better is welcome to do so. -- Begoon 00:20, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

York University[edit]


...svg format. --大诺史 (talk) 15:07, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)
  • Two things about this.
  1. After searching the internet, I managed to found the logo in a publication. Unfortunately, York University does not care much about its crest, so I can only found the uncoloured version of the logo, as seen in here. I think someone can work that out.
  2. By browsing the category in Commons, I managed to found a better logo (as seen in above). The crest in the .jpg has a way much detail than in the svg. I think someone can work that out.--Jeromi Mikhael (talk) 12:23, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
  • There's also two png versions - (a) and (b) shown above...(a) is used on,,, (b) on The fact that 30+ wikis use Yorkunicrest1.png is probably in large part due to copying/translating the article - but that does seem to be the 'outline' the university uses, as shown in the photo linked by JM... -- Begoon 12:57, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
@Begoon: Nope, all of the created versions are in error. The first version of the image is the official depiction of the crest in a painting. Look at the bottom right, it says "1960" - 1 year after the establishment of the university.--Jeromi Mikhael (talk) 13:07, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
Update : The uploader of the official picture is York University itself.--Jeromi Mikhael (talk) 13:13, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
Because the username is Yorkuni? Or am I missing something else? The talk page you linked just has deletion notices for 'no permission' etc. (which is quite possibly just because they didn't want to jump through our hoops, of course...) -- Spiderman 13:32, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
Update : I found some tweets about the crest : [1], [2]--Jeromi Mikhael (talk) 13:13, 16 May 2019 (UTC)b
  • Yes, there's no doubt which is the 'correct' version as used by the university. That doesn't make the other versions an error, strictly speaking, just a different interpretation - see w:Blazon, w:Heraldry, w:Heraldry#Modern heraldry. Nevertheless, for the purposes of illustrating our articles we should, indeed, prefer what the university actually uses. -- Begoon 13:23, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
@Begoon: The actual version that the university use is the monochrome one. Talk about historical usage--Jeromi Mikhael (talk) 13:31, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
I don't understand what you mean by "Talk about historical usage"? By the way, I'm not disagreeing with you here to any important extent... -- Begoon 13:36, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
To try and explain where I'm coming from, I wouldn't personally create an svg of this, right now, with what we have, because I think it would be just another 'interpretation', however 'good' it might or might not be. That's not to say I don't think anyone should - just that I wouldn't. If I had to do something, and was more interested than I am, I'd send an email to the university asking for an image of the crest which they preferred for use in our articles. -- Begoon 14:03, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
@Begoon: After the 1990s and 2000s, the university gradually use this logo more often. The crest became gradually discarded.--Jeromi Mikhael (talk) 14:08, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
Yes. Universities these days often have a 'modern' logo and an older 'crest'. There are many, many wikipedia articles that use both. If that's what you meant by "Talk about historical usage" then I understand now. -- Begoon 14:17, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
@Begoon: So, have you asked the university about this matter? And can this request be closed or not?--Jeromi Mikhael (talk) 16:51, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
I haven't asked anybody anything, and I don't intend to - read what I said above again. And it's not up to me whether a request is closed or not - I'm just one voice. I've given an opinion, that's all. Don't wait for me on any account - I don't intend doing anything because I'm not convinced there's anything here to do - but that shouldn't prevent anyone else from proceeding as they see fit. I've explained that twice now - I'm not sure how to make it any clearer. Cheers. -- Begoon 18:39, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

@大诺史, Begoon: I have sent the request to the York's Communications department. Hope they'll give a good response.--Jeromi Mikhael (talk) 07:33, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

@Jeromi Mikhael: Thank you. -- 大诺史 (talk) 14:34, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
