Batavian Naval Flag[edit]

((editprotected)) Could the Batavian Naval Flag: Image:Batavische Rep Kriegsmarine.gif be added as an alias to this template? Centyreplycontribs – 02:14, 18 April 2008 (UTC)[reply]

 Not done How, and why? Happymelon 21:42, 18 April 2008 (UTC)[reply]
Add '''| flag alias-bat = Batavische Rep Kriegsmarine.gif''' on the line after '''|flag alias-pri'''. Why? Because the Batavian Naval Flag is a recognised historical Dutch flag which should be able to be called upon when using the Netherlands flagicon template when we wish to use this flag, say in an infobox.

Would Template:Country data Batavian Republic (for ((flagicon|Batavian Republic))) be a better choice? — Andrwsc (talk · contribs) 04:28, 20 April 2008 (UTC)[reply]
That's fine. Centyreplycontribs – 11:38, 20 April 2008 (UTC)[reply]

The current data page links to the Netherlands article, when many articles probably want instead to link to the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The latter is the sovereign state; whereas the former is a European constituent country of the latter. Can we have an option or something in this template for it to link the the latter article? Thanks. --Spoon! (talk) 22:52, 19 July 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Okay someone created a template for the Kingdom: Template:Country data Kingdom of the Netherlands. Can someone add it under related templates? --Spoon! (talk) 05:27, 5 June 2009 (UTC)[reply]
just took me quite some time to find out the existence of Template:Country data Kingdom of the Netherlands. The link request of last year is therefore still valid... L.tak (talk) 22:50, 22 July 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Air force ensign[edit]

Please could the following adjustments be made:
| flag alias-air force = Image:NL-VLAG-Luchtmacht.svg | link alias-air force = Royal Netherlands Air Force

Naval Jack[edit]

Could someone please add Image:Naval Jack of the Netherlands.svg as the naval variant? ChrisDHDR 19:55, 24 November 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Add variants[edit]

((editprotected)) Could you please add the following code (previous two sections plus a bit of clean up):

| flag alias-pri  = Prinsenvlag.svg
| flag alias-air force = Image:NL-VLAG-Luchtmacht.svg 
| link alias-air force = Royal Netherlands Air Force
| flag alias-naval = Naval Jack of the Netherlands.svg
| link alias-naval = Royal Netherlands Navy
| var1 = pri
| var2 = naval
| var3 = air force

which would replace the folowing lines:

| flag alias-pri  = Prinsenvlag.svg
| link alias-naval = Royal Netherlands Navy
| var1 = pri

Thanks, ChrisDHDR 18:36, 5 June 2009 (UTC)[reply]

 Done, athlough I don't think the var2 and var3 were necessary, actually. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 21:15, 5 June 2009 (UTC)[reply]
I have partially reverted this. Please see the conventions at Wikipedia:WikiProject Ships/Ensigns, where naval ensigns are to be used with Template:Navy, and not naval jacks. The correct flag for ((navy|Netherlands)) is the national flag, which is also the ensign. — Andrwsc (talk · contribs) 21:51, 5 June 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Edit request from L.tak, 18 August 2010[edit]

((editprotected)) Could the following be added to the profile (2 out of 3 were already on the talkpage for some time)

| flag alias-air force = Image:NL-VLAG-Luchtmacht.svg | link alias-air force = Royal Netherlands Air Force

| related3 = Batavian Republic groet! L.tak (talk) 16:46, 18 August 2010 (UTC)[reply]

 Not done Please read the sections above. The consensus at WP:SHIPS is to use naval ensigns not naval jacks, and the naval ensign for the Netherlands is the national flag. (Many countries are like this - see WP:WikiProject Ships/Ensigns). As for the air force flag, that is unused in icon form on Wikipedia, so there is no reason to add it to this flag template, as this is a highly-transcluded template. — Andrwsc (talk · contribs) 17:02, 18 August 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Prince's Flag[edit]

Could someone please tell me the wiki-code I need to use to make a little flagicon Prince's Flag appear in an article? Concrete Cloverleaf (talk) 08:19, 9 May 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Template-protected edit request on 8 January 2019[edit]

flag alias-1937 = Flag of the Netherlands (WFB 2000).jpg
flag alias-2004 = Flag of the Netherlands (WFB 2004).gif
| var2 = 1937
| var3 = 2004
Remove these lines to remove flags as they are just based on the shades used in pictures in different editions of the CIA World Factbook and not are official or even real changes to the flag used by Netherlands, they should not be included and especially not linked to a specific year
There would be no errors of pages that use these files, which only a single page does, which I have tested and which auto-corrects if this would be changed

Neither is still in use:
