Hello, I am Slovak interested in graphics, linguistics and geography. I am Wikipedian since 2009 and since 2011 I collect graphic symbols (mainly flags) for languages. (The list is here and here.) Some national flags are good for languages, many not, as is written in blogs. Thus I created some linguistic flags. First I uploaded them to Commons, then to deviantART. At Commons I decided to vectorize some files, including some flags, but also coats of arms. Collection of coats of arms of Slovak bishops is at my Slovak user page. I visited Indonesian Wikipedia when looking for linguistic symbols and someone created my Indonesian user talk. Thus at my Indonesian user page is list of "twin places": geographic objects with names of very similar sound or meaning. Similar list for flags is at my subpage and another subpage collects minimal recognized symbols of countries. This page contains lists of pictures I would like to vectorize. You can propose better names of some file at my user talk. The intended name should be in blind link. If a picture listed here is already vectorized, the vector version is shown by nowSVG label.
I am willing to vectorize other files too. Their list is at my Commons user page.
- 1 Here are flags of Incubator Wikipedia languages. Vector versions will be behind link made of name of language.
- 2 These symbols were on English Wikipedia or other source:
- 3 These symbols with non-wiki source were not vectorized yet:
- 4 Here are flags of real Wikipedia languages. Most of them are already vectorized.
- 5 These languages can have more than one symbol
Chin or Mizo (good name of file?)
These symbols were on English Wikipedia or other source:
and these unfree iages:
These symbols with non-wiki source were not vectorized yet:
- http://www.crwflags.com/fotw/images/r/ru-da-ta.gif (or Canov's Tabasaran)
Here are flags of real Wikipedia languages. Most of them are already vectorized.
Vectorized with marked vector version (nowSVG label):
Vectorized with non-wiki source and not yet vectorized:
|Language||Source image||Vectorized image|
|Kanuri||historical and ethnic flag|
|Laz||these flags or this?|
|Kongo||ethnic or political|
|Lak||flag (ethnic IMHO)|
|Zhuang||flag is about one screen down|
|Sichuan Yi||this or this|
|Cree||non-wiki Pan-Cree flag|
|Persian||flag from this page|
|Pennsylvania German||File:Pennsylvania German flag.svg|
|Central_Bicolano||flag in third row|
These languages can have more than one symbol
These languages are not bound to homogenous peoples, so they could need neutral symbols. Here I collect and create them. Flag of Brazil is good WITHOUT STARS, because they are bound to geography. Only the color scheme is better than flag of Portugal.
- Should I upload the striped flags too? Or only one of them? And under what name?
- Should I vectorize the third flag too?
