is this license okay to use it for pics of Adolf Hitler? Schaengel89 @me 14:47, 25 Feb 2005 (UTC)

You might want to slap this template onto pics of Hitler, just to be sure. However, I don't think there is any problem using such photos, especially not for educational purposes such as ours. Chamaeleon 15:09, 8 Jun 2005 (UTC)
even though Hitler may be a symbol of the nazi government, the law this template refers to, only applys to badges, insignia, flags, uniforms and greetings (from [1] Kennzeichen [...] sind namentlich Fahnen, Abzeichen, Uniformstücke, Parolen und Grußformen.) . So you don't need to do this (at least if he is not wearing a SS uniform) -- Gorgo 01:27, 11 August 2005 (UTC)

Concerning my adding of Hungary: use of Nazi symbols in Hungary is covered in 269/B of the Hungarian criminal law (Btk). (Essentially, you can't use or show them in public, unless for educational, scientific, informative etc. purposes.) Actually this applies only to the swastika, the SS badge and the Hungarian version of the swastika (with arrows on its ends), but whatever. --Tgr 15:13, 26 August 2005 (UTC)

No flags please[edit]

I replaced flags with language name templates (again). Plese note that a clear majority on Commons_talk:Templates_for_galleries voted against the use of flags to represent languages. -- 3247 14:33, 5 September 2005 (UTC)

French law[edit]

Display of Nazi symbols is also illegal in France, under Art. R645-1 Code pénal. Physchim62 13:34, 21 January 2006 (UTC)

Polish law[edit]

The using of nazi symbols as such isn't forbidden by Polish law! It's only forbidden to use them to promote the nazi state. The same accords to any graphical content used in this case. Shaqspeare 11:07, 10 May 2006 (UTC)

Russian law[edit]

In Russian law :

Федеральный закон «Об увековечении победы Советского народа 
в Великой Отечественной войне 1941 — 1945 годов» 
от 19 апреля 1995 года №80-ФЗ 
(в ред. Федеральных законов от 22.08.2004 № 122-ФЗ, от 03.11.2006 № 179-ФЗ)

...В Российской Федерации запрещается использование в любой форме 
нацистской символики как оскорбляющей многонациональный 
народ и память о понесенных в Великой Отечественной войне жертвах.

This seems to be used at any images having swastika on it. E.g. Finland roundel WW2 border.svg or Kipling swastika.png after all aren't Nazi symbols as the template claims, are they? 19:10, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

Some people seem to assume that the swastika is purely a Nazi symbol. I just removed this notice from a symbol for peace. Too bad. 01:58, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

Faulty translation of {{Nazi symbol}}[edit]

Could someone change the autotranslation to French so as to read: "[...] Utiliser des images d'organisations interdites en Allemagne (comme la svastika du parti nazi) peut, selon le contexte être illégal en Allemagne [...]", instead of "[...] Utiliser des images d'organisations interdites en Allemagne (comme la svastika du parti nazi) peut, selon le contexte être illégale en Allemagne [...]", which an obvious misprint.

Thanks. --Azurfrog (talk) 21:44, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

Isn't it pathetic to have a clear swastika in a template about the banning of Nazi symbols[edit]

As said above. Why not have a blurred out swastika on the Nazi flag for the template - it blurs it out to show that it is banned. Rather than having a swastika with some red "s"-looking symbol on top of it - the current template is USING a swastika so it will have to template ITSELF as using a Nazi symbol - that's pathetic. Please change it to having a blurred out swastika.

The swastika itself is not banned at all, just in the nazi colours and usage in nazi context. --Denniss (talk) 09:36, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

Sorbian translations[edit]

Since Nazi symbols are banned throughout the Sorbian-speaking region, I think that translations into the Sorbian languages should be added in the long term. -- 20:44, 14 October 2015 (UTC)
