Why are the UK countries listed here seperately?[edit]

As we all know, the UK consists of four countries which are listed seperately in this template. I do not understand why we need to list subdivisions of countries in here and why the UK should make an exception in this respect. Germany has 16 states which got coats of arms of their own just like the 4 sub-countries of the UK and the German states are not listed here. I therefore suggest that England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland be removed from this template. -- 79.238.168.86 (talk) 14:25, 20 December 2011 (UTC) -I agree actually. England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are not sovereign states, so they shouldn't be listed on there.JWULTRABLIZZARD (talk) 10:38, 22 March 2012 (UTC)
