In Roman times the city was known as Gradus. Aquae Gradatae was the name of sea waters surrounding the city. The name comes from Slavic word 'grad', which can mean 'a castle' or 'a city'. Like Belgrade (Beograd) or Graz (Gradec; Styria). 07:48, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

It's an absurdity, Gradus means "port of call" (the last one on the course for Aquileia) and slavonic people has nothing to do with its history or etimology. Citing German or Slavonic toponyms here is the same as inserting the Italian "Londra" in London because there are many Italians that lives there or visit the city, that is an absurdity. A rational principle is using Slavonic or Furlan toponyms if the municipality applies the Italian laws on linguistic minorities (like Slavonic toponyms in Gorizia or Trieste), or for precise historical reasons (like German toponyms in Gorizia or Trieste). None of this applies here.--Riccardo.fabris (talk) 13:16, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Friuli-Venezia Giulia-Stemma.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Friuli-Venezia Giulia-Stemma.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 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 lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
