  • Comment. As far as I know, Wikipedia has exact representations of all national flags and they have generally been considered ineligible for featured picture status. However, one option might be to have a single featured picture set of all flags of sovereign states. Thoughts? --KFP (talk | contribs) 20:36, 28 April 2007 (UTC)
    • Sounds like a great idea, although I am wary of possible arguments over which flags should or shouldn't be featured in the set (Quebec? Palestine? England+Scotland+Wales+N.I.? etc.) Spebudmak 15:39, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
  • Oppose - I didn't find any national flag in the FP gallery and agree that is the most reasonable thing to do (with the exception of this one, of course!... :-) Alvesgaspar 22:41, 28 April 2007 (UTC)
  • Oppose Either we promote all flags or none since they are effectively the same for our purposes. I would not be against promoting all flags per se. Witty Lama 04:41, 29 April 2007 (UTC)

  • Oppose, err nominator? Explain to me your reasoning for classifying this as a "wonderful picture". --Phoenix (talk) 18:02, 29 April 2007 (UTC)
  • Oppose Uninteresting 8thstar 18:10, 29 April 2007 (UTC)
  • Oppose Its just a flag! -Zainub 18:55, 29 April 2007 (UTC)
  • Oppose. It's a neat flag and all, but it's still a flag. I like the FP flag set idea, though. Amphy 17:03, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
  • Comment - The idea of promoting to FP a set of national flags sounds good at first thought. However, and because all national flag representations obey to some oficial standard, we will be evaluating the flags themselves instead of the pictures. This is not, I believe, the purpose of WP:FPC and might contribute to start some kind of nationalism contest. Alvesgaspar 19:12, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
