As WP:INFOBOXFLAG uses this article as an example of where the infobox should not have a flag, I've removed it. Obviously it should not be replaced without an agreed change to our guidance. Dougweller (talk) 09:34, 11 June 2014 (UTC)
I note that the MOS has been changed, which is fine. Dougweller (talk) 11:52, 11 June 2014 (UTC)
The True Abkhaz flag represents Abkhaz Kingdom (The hand) with white stripes (Snowy mountains, and Christianity), and Green stripes (Ancient Forests, and Islam) and stars representing land of Abkhazia. Abkhazia never used Cross as a means of self identification. Yes there are some Abkhaz family seals with cross in it but there is at least one accommodating a swastika.
Is this an encyclopedia or a site for colonist Kartvelian bigotry and hate speech?
There is also no reason why alternative names cannot be used in article text, in contexts where they are more appropriate than the name used as the title of the article.
In this case there's no compelling reason to use alternative name (Ochamchire) version throughout the article, it will just create confusion for the reader. There's a a lot of alternative names of localities in Abkhazia so let's stick with the ones used in the main articles about them(be they Georgian ones like Gulripshi or Abkhazian like Gagra).

Somebody in the world can explain me why I cant write another article "Autonomous Republic of Abkhazia"(This is a redirect from a title that is fully protected from editing for any of several possible reasons. For more information follow the category link.)? This is part of Georgia and same time this region is managed by Russian federation by his marionet government and they call himself as "Abkazian republic". This flags and so on are emblems of unrecognized respublic! This is an official site of administration. of corse in the wikipedia there should be articles like: "abkazia" and ""rebublic of Abkhazhia"("Abkhazia", "republik of Abkazia" and "Autonomous Republic of Abkhazia" are different subjects and should be written artikles sepparately) but pliase dont violate our rights!
This is flag of Unrecognized "Republic of Abkhazia" and should not be in the top tamplate.
Most of this article (history, geography, demography etc) is about the region and not about the current government. Georgian Government of the Autonomous Republic of Abkhazia is mentioned in the Politics secion alongside the de facto one. Also there's a special article dedicated to it.

Yes you ar wright, but if this artikle is only about region of Abkhazia you can't power to write in the tamplete only "Abkhazian republic" or prezident of this defacto republic. Georgian administration of autonomy republic hav manajers and full stuff, but there is not noting about them. I think its prefer to write members of official administration rather them defacto! But if you write defacto president you must write here aur administrations too!--Surprizi (talk) 13:39, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
Here is artikle into georgian (autonomy ropublic of Abkhazia) where we write administration regions, but beside this we have article (abkazia). Abkhazia has his big history and write all details in one place its not normal. In the enciclopedy Abkazia should contain topics with "main articles". and if somebody chooses to read whole about A/R Abkhazia or Republic Abkhazia it is his wright. In may opinion Abkhazia should contain all story but should contain short topics!--Surprizi (talk) 13:51, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
Yes I forgot to say, I delate some vords in main tamplate. If this is about region, regions name is "Abkhazia" not "Republic Abkhazia". If you think that previous was write please write in the georgian part in tamplate as "Republik of Abkhazia" (აფხაზეთის რესპუბლიკა). But it would be the shame of wikipedya!--Surprizi (talk) 13:56, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
Every time when I see this article's infobox it makes me feel that it's not real NPOV, because it shows only de facto situation and official data is not shown (but reader may be interested in this), we must determinate our policy. There is a two ways to be neutral: 1) we must have two infoboxes one for de facto Abkhazia and another for Abkhazian Autonomy as it is in Swedish Wikipedia good article ► Abchazien, or 2) we must not have political infoboxes and must describe Abkhazia region as geographical entity (e.g. main city, area, population and etc.) as it is in Georgia Wikipedia article ► აფხაზეთი. --g. balaxaZe★ 06:48, 18 February 2015 (UTC)
I agree with you my friend! Swedish version is more suitable as I see.--Surprizi (talk) 07:50, 18 February 2015 (UTC)
I wanted to let everyone editing this article know that I have 19 photos taken in Abkhazia in 2014 uploaded to the Commons and available here should you have any need. Interlaker (talk) 00:18, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
