Controversial subjects

Any opinion expressed by a contributor about a controversial subject is to be considered his/her own personal opinion, not the opinion of the website managers, director or editors. The fact that our images are used in another website or any other media should not be considered as an endorsement of ours for any opinion expressed nor of the images posted here.


Accuracy

The quality of images and news varies very much: the website contains not only well-known flags but also sketches and rumours, often seized on the spot from a TV report or a magazine. In any case we disclaim any responsibility about the veracity and accuracy of the contents of the website.

The hosting organization

The organization that is hosting the website is not responsible in any way for the contents of the website.

Copyright

Most text and images contained in the website are made by the contributors themselves. If the contributor states the source of the information, we report it, otherwise we assume it is new material and the copyright is owned by the contributor. Our editorial policy is to include images only when we can ascertain that we have permission to use them. However, it is often the case that an image is provided to us with little back-up information associated with it. In such cases we try to assess if the image is owned by someone before posting it. If you encounter an image which you think may be from your site and used on FOTW without permission, please contact the editor of the page to advise him. Our intent is to provide as complete a collection of the world's flags as possible, and we would be most grateful to be able to use your image. If we know where it comes from, we will credit it.
Some pictures are derived from cliparts of graphical programs. Cliparts normally can be incorporated into drawings without any copyright problems. Therefore we add them to the website without declaring anything about their origin.
