US Flag[edit]

The US flag used in this article is incorrect. It has 50 stars. The US flag only had 48 stars in 1952. RickK 22:48, Sep 8, 2004 (UTC)

Could you tell that from the thumbnail or did you view the enlarged version? :P -- Chuq 23:13, 8 Sep 2004 (UTC)
I viewed the enlarged version, because I was checking for the star count.  :) RickK 23:25, Sep 8, 2004 (UTC)

image[edit]

Is there any type of main image anyone can get for this to make this look similar to the other pages of the Olympic Games?

A program cover, official logo, etc.?

Image:Olympic logo 1952.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 04:37, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

1952 Summer Olympic Postage Stamps Issued by Finland[edit]

(Newbie)

Would it be appropriate to add a section describing and picturing the...

  • Postage stamps (issued by host country Finland)?
  • Postmarks specifically used to promote the Games and used during the Games?
  • Cacheted envelopes used to promote in advance of the Games?

Or does all of this get too specific and should really be a separate page?

I am sure that the subject of picturing postage stamps has been discussed elsewhere. Any tips on how to find that discussion would be appreciated. It has only been in the past 10-20 years that post offices have actually expressed copyright interest in their stamp images. However, in practice, every reference catalog, reference book, reference website, and commercial website about postage stamps routinely pictures the stamps.

Welcome to Wikipedia! There is so much to write about any given Olympics, that the main article will always have to compromise even on fairly central information. The 1952 Winter Olympics is a good article, and you can see there what sort of information has been neglected and included. Considering that the summer edition has many-fold the number of events, discussion of philately is too detailed. There could be other articles where this would be appropriate, for instance Postage stamps of Ireland is a featured article. Finland is covered by Postage stamps and postal history of Finland. If a series of stamps are sufficiently notable (see WP:N; in general they have to have independent, reliable sources given them significant coverage), then a separate article could be created, but this requires a certain amount of literature on the subject.
Regarding copyright, Wikipedia has a strict interpretation of copyright rules; we must be certain images are in the public domain before we host them on the Wikimedia Commons. There is a complete overview of the copyright status of all country's stamps here. Feel free to upload stamps from any country and year that falls into the public domain. For instance, 1994 Winter Olympics is currently illustrated largely based on stamps. For Finland, any stamp published before 1990 is regarded as in the public domain. Hope I've answered your questions, if not, feel free to ask more here or on my talk page. Arsenikk (talk) 09:27, 23 April 2011 (UTC)

Shirt shared by 3 US gold medallists[edit]

Should this page include the story of the 3 US field athletes (Shot-putter Parry O'Brien, discuss thrower Sim Iness and javelin thrower Cyrus Young) who wore the same university sweatshirt when they won their gold medals?
