Tudor Crown[edit]

I have noticed many historical British flags have used this crown on their flags. I was wondering if someone can help draw this crown in the SVG format. Once we do, we can blow many copyvios out of the water. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 21:45, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

Do you mean the "Tudor Crown" or "St. Edward's Crown" or both? I guess we'll need both. Still looking for a photograph of a "Tudor Crown". ¦ Reisio 02:34, 28 September 2006 (UTC)
Actually I guess we don't need photographs, since the depictions used on the flags are barely accurate. So, maybe just use the St. Edward's Crown from Image:Flag of Queensland.svg - shouldn't be hard to morph it into a Tudor Crown, either. ¦ Reisio 02:42, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

I needed the Tudor crown, since some flags, such as the badge for [5]. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 06:15, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

Pick an image we can duplicate and put into public domain and I'll do it. ¦ Reisio 21:33, 28 September 2006 (UTC)
w:10-4. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 23:16, 28 September 2006 (UTC)
Eh, I'll just go off these - most look similar enough that there shouldn't be any complaints about creativity. ¦ Reisio 17:24, 29 September 2006 (UTC)
That's fine. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 17:55, 29 September 2006 (UTC)
I'm beginning to suspect that this crown may have never existed in any tangible form, but only as depictions for coins and flags, etc.. ¦ Reisio 22:42, 4 October 2006 (UTC)
Wouldn't be surprised, but take your time on the image, there is no hurry. :) User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 03:28, 5 October 2006 (UTC)
Searching for a copy of the original design or whatever now. ¦ Reisio 05:02, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

Norwegian flags[edit]

There is an (IMO) urgent need for flags to replace the flags recently deleted from English Wikipedia. Could someone please create new flags? The needed flags are:

  1. Image:Norwegian Royal Standard.svg ExampleNorwegian Royal Standard flag.png Image:Norwegian Royal Standard flag.png
  2. Image:Standard of the Crown Prince of Norway.svg ExampleStandard of the crown prince of Norway.png Image:Standard of the crown prince of Norway.png

  2. Image:Flag of Bergen.svg Example

As well as the historical flags of Norway such as:

  1. Image:Norwegian Royal Flag (1844-1905).svg ExampleRoyal Standard of Norway (1844-1905).svg File:Royal Standard of Norway (1844-1905).svg
  2. Image:Norwegian flag 1818-1844 south of Cape Finisterre.svg ExampleSwedish and Norwegian merchant flag 1818-1844.svg File:Swedish and Norwegian merchant flag 1818-1844.svg


These (except the second last one) were formerly known under the same name as gif files on English wikipedia and examples of them can all be found on this page at FOTW. Thank you for any help. Inge 14:14, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

Why were they deleted from en? ¦ Reisio 20:52, 13 September 2006 (UTC)
They were copyrighted versions, not .svg images. Valentinian (talk) 21:37, 13 September 2006 (UTC)
They were copies from FOTW? ¦ Reisio 01:21, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
They were downloaded from FOTW and tagged with the FOTW tag, yes. Inge07:22, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
Okay, just wanted to be clear. :) I'll try and do one every now and then, and I'm sure some of the others will want to get in on the action. ¦ Reisio 13:52, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
That would be great. Thank you very much for any contributions. :) Inge 12:17, 16 September 2006 (UTC)
Now individual links to examples of each flag has been added to ease the process for those wanting to recreate any of these flags.Inge 13:10, 21 November 2006 (UTC)

Request for PNG to SVG conversion[edit]

I recently uploaded several images of Polish flags and coat of arms: Image:Flaga Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej.PNG, Image:Flaga z godlem Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej.PNG, Image:Bandera wojenna Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej.PNG, Image:Herb Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej.PNG. The shades and shapes are more accurate and correct than those in the images that were already on Commons: Image:Flag of Poland.svg, Image:Flag of Poland (state).svg , Image:Naval Ensign of Poland.svg (all uploaded by Denelson83), and Image:Herb Polski.svg (uploaded by Dbenbenn, so they should replace the old ones. The problem is they are in PNG format. Could someone please convert my images into SVG format and upload them on Commons? Kpalion 07:52, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

The problem with converting those versions of the Polish flags to SVG is that the eagle in the shield has a very complex shading pattern. -- Denelson83 08:10, 17 September 2006 (UTC)
Well, I knew that the shading of the eagle is a problem from the heraldic point of view and now it turns out it's also a technical problem! If at least the colors could be corrected, that would still be better than what there is now. Please let me know if you could do that. Kpalion 09:53, 17 September 2006 (UTC)
I'll give the eagle a shot. As for the solid colors, someone will have to verify that your conversion is accurate. ¦ Reisio 12:06, 17 September 2006 (UTC)
Very well. Just remember that the shades of white and red on the CoA should be the same as on the flag (so it might be better to double check my color conversion before working on the Eagle). Kpalion 13:10, 17 September 2006 (UTC)
It won't matter, would have to change all instances of a six-character string at most. ¦ Reisio 03:04, 18 September 2006 (UTC)

Urgent: SVG replacements for flag images up for deletion[edit]

Here's a comprehensive list of flag images on Commons that are for various reasons marked for deletion and could use a replacement ASAP. Compiled by browsing Category:Unknown and Category:FOTW images.

Predominantly regional or historical flags.

I skipped historical British colonial flags, since there's already a topic for them elsewhere.

These are on English Wikipedia:

Enjoy! ;)--Himasaram 04:39, 5 October 2006 (UTC)
