Fair use rationale for Image:Flag of the Albanian Republic.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Flag of the Albanian Republic.gif 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 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.

The Flag of the Principality of Albania (1914-1925) is ONE. That Principality did NOT have two flags. Alexikoua entering the flag of the Irredentist Northern Epirus is making a POV. Please do not enter two flags for this historical period of Albania. sulmues --Sulmues 17:52, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

It has nothing to do with the Principality itself. The userbox shows which countries/states/political entities ruled the same region before and after. Since part of this region, more precisely, the southern provinces of Korca and Gjirokaster, were under the administration of the provisional governement of N.E. before the establishment of the Principality this flag should be added too.
See for example Soviet Union's box [[1]], which consist of several flags.Alexikoua (talk) 21:09, 16 February 2010 (UTC)
The example of the Soviet Union is a bad one because it's showing what was before and after the Soviet Union. You can show before 1912 (Ottoman Empire), but after that no N.E. flag was ever waived to represent the Principality of Albania. Even the Protocol of Corfu (provided that it existed as per our ongoing talk page there), recognized full sovereignty of the Principality of Albania, so I would kindly ask you to remove the NE flag from here. sulmues (talk) --Sulmues 15:16, 17 February 2010 (UTC)
Although I have to disagree with you, I will respect this version. The disbute we are talking about is of minor improtance and doesn't need too much attetion. Boxes are not the main text anyway.Alexikoua (talk) 20:33, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for your understanding! --sulmues (talk) 16:09, 24 February 2010 (UTC)
