Coats of arms of Greek Military
Thanks for uploading these images. I have two objections:
- PNG format is prefered over GIF. Could you possibly upload the same files in PNG format?
- Names like "Airforce.gif", "Army2.gif" and "Navy2.gif" are not very descriptive and could lead to confusion.
These images are not free. On the greek wikipedia they're uploaded as fair use, while they are not exempt from copyright by the greek copyright law. So they can't be kept here - Badseed talk 10:06, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
