Should we divide this incomplete list into two sections? One for true tricolours and those with symbols? --16:43, October 25, 2003 (UTC)
- I'm not sure. Also, is a tricolour with a symbol that has a color which is not one of the three colors still a tricolour? Do we need to differentiate between those two? Nikola 06:05, 26 Oct 2003 (UTC)
Questions (open as of December 2005)
The "Confusion and profusion of meanings" section is a string of "some say...some say...some say..." It makes for very unpleasant reading. Can you make it better so it doesn't sound like a section made up of hearsay?--184.108.40.206 22:40, 22 December 2005 (UTC)
The old flag of New York was the old Dutch Blue,White,and Orange vertical flag which would have pre-dated the French Revolutionary Tricolour. 20:17, 19 May 2007 (UTC)
GB and USA?
Why are Great Britain and USA on this page? If we were to include every single country with three colors... Iceland, Norway, so on. They are even more similar to a Tricolor than the GB flag. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 08:16, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
- Yes, because it's a well-known term in vexillology and not too difficult to grasp. —Nightstallion (?) 21:06, 1 July 2006 (UTC)
Vertical tri-colours and revolution
Vertical tri-colours are said to be specific to countries that fought a revolution (e.g., Italy, France, Mexico, Afghanistan, etc). Is there some corroboration on this? If so, can it be added to the main page of Tri-colours). —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 18.104.22.168 (talk • contribs) 10 January 2007.
- It can be if you find a source backing up this claim. Otherwise, it sounds like simple speculation to me. Rudy Breteler (talk) 20:55, 24 March 2008 (UTC)
US and GB
The definition you are giving for tricolour is:
- "A tricolour ("three colours") is a flag or banner more-or-less equally divided (horizontally, vertically, or, less frequently, diagonally) into three [emphasis added] bands of differing colours."
- I thought the same. But if you read the article carefully, it says somewhere that "some" people interpret the term "tricolour" differently (allegedly). Still, the fact remains that the article contradicts itself and is confusing. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 08:44, 2 February 2008 (UTC)
If you say that Uzbekistan's flag is trcolour you're wrong 'cos it has blue, white, red and green colours and I'm not sure but I think they are four colours =) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 23:08, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
I just wanted to say that, in my opinion, the ethymology of the word "tricolore" should be added. It takes origin from the Italian "tre" (three) and "colore" (colour-color). Thanks
- It's more likely to be Latin and the etymology is fairly obvious. But also see Wikipedia:The Pope is Catholic. Graham87 11:30, 9 January 2009 (UTC)
A slur for the French Tricolour is the French 'retreat-colour'
The French Tricolour is widely known as the French reatreat-colour amongst the Anglo-Saxon and Germanic world and amongst the colonies nowadays and free from French imperialism. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 06:13, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
