Would User:Gryffindor care to explain why he believes the Royal Standard is appropriate in this template, please? Not all palaces are, or were ever, associated with the king. --Paul_012 (talk) 16:10, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

Royal Standard image in Template:Royal palaces in Thailand[edit]

(Copied from User talk:Sodacan)

I don't think using the Royal Standard is appropriate for this template. The articles linked to by template include palaces of various royal family members, as well as former palaces, which are not associated with the king, to whom the flag refers. --Paul_012 (talk) 06:33, 29 November 2013 (UTC)

The royal standard is completely appropriate. The standard is a flag, flags fly on top of buildings. The royal standard was created specifically to signify the king's presence in buildings. Why should the image not be on the template that is primarily about these buildings? Sodacan (talk) 06:40, 29 November 2013 (UTC)
Hmm. The way I see it, since the flag signifies the king's presence, rather than the buildings' status, it represents only the king and not the buildings. --Paul_012 (talk) 16:41, 29 November 2013 (UTC)
The building's status as a palace depends upon the king taking residence there, hence the flag that signify his presence being used as an icon on this template. I completely agree with your point about the flag signifying the king and not the palaces. However I do not understand how there is a conflict here, in fact the logic blends in rather well together. Using the image does not in anyway diminish the status of the building, it in fact confirms the status of the buildings. Sodacan (talk) 03:51, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
