Subject [OT] Sodipodi SVG flags 1.0
Date Sat, 15 Nov 2003 14:08:48 GMT
I just saw this in the SVG mail list and I know there are a lot of SVG users 
in the Cocoon community who might want to use national flags in their web 
apps as buttons and such.
Take Care,

>Sodipodi flags 1.0
>This is the first release of the Sodipodi flag collection. This
>collection currently consist of over 210 different international and
>local flags. The flags are donated by their authors into the public
>domain.  The flags are in the scalable and free SVG format which today
>is supported by most major vector graphics programs. Most flags are done
>using the Sodipodi vector drawing application. In others words these are
>free flags in a free format made with a free application.
>The core collection of flags in this collection are meant to be as
>accurate as possible.  If you discover flags in here that have wrong
>proportions or wrong colors then please update the flag with the correct
>colors or sizes and send it to us with an explanation.
>New flags are of course also welcomed, but remember we need a clear
>statement from you that you dedicate the flag to the public domain,
>preferably using the Creative Commons public domain dedication process
>found here:
>We do hope that many of you take some time to help us make this an even
>more complete collection.
>We hope that this collection can be useful to people in many different
>settings be that in relation to software, publishing, education and so
>The assembly of this huge collection has been made possible thanks to
>the hard work of many people. We big thank you goes to all our
>contributors listed in the CREDITS file distributed with this package.
>We would especially like to thank Tobias Jacobs, Sigge Kotliar, Cezary
>Biel, Brett Roper, Daniel McRae and Lauris Kaplinski, whose
>contributions count for around half the collection.

>The creation of these flags had not been possible without the hard work
>that free software coders have put into great tools like Sodipodi and
>librsvg. The projects have helped increase the viability of SVG in free
>and open source software a lot.
>Both these two tools and the new Inkscape project do need more coders in
>order to improve further. For instance you will notice that many of the
>SVG flags do not render correctly in Nautilus due to some problems with
>librsvg. People interested in working on these and other issues are
>highly encouraged to join the project mailing-lists. You find the
