User:Huaiwei and User:SchmuckyTheCat have been attempting to remove this template from flag of Hong Kong, Macao and Gibraltar ([1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8]). Should the use of this template be limited to sovereign States? There have been many discussions on several talk pages over whether the word "national" should refer only to "nations" or "sovereign States", or to the broader sense of "country". — Instantnood July 9, 2005 08:55 (UTC) (modified 13:07, July 24, 2005 (UTC))

Randomness[edit]

Why does this template (Lists of flags) include a random picking of countries, plus Antarctica? How a bout merging it with Template:Nationalflags, and perhaps adding links in its header to vexillology and heraldry for reference. =J //Big Adamsky 23:22, 5 February 2006 (UTC)

Micronations[edit]

Should a group of places with absolutely no status appear on a template of national symbols?--Peta 02:37, 10 August 2006 (UTC)
