AccuracyThe quality of images and news varies very much: the website

CopyrightMost text and images contained in the website are made by the
contributors themselves. If the contributor states the source of 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.
