Template talk:Ireland HR Infobox

The flag used in this infobox is inappropriate for usage relating to the island of Ireland. I have uploaded the St Patrick saltire, which is more appropriate and less offensive. The flag of the Republic of Ireland only came into official usage after 1920 and was limited to the territory of that country. It should never be applied to the island of Ireland.

I have asked for input on this from other FamilySearch staff. Thank you for your suggestion. SvareJM 14:40, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

After discussing this with FamilySearch staff it has been decided to use the St. Patrick's saltire, the Union Flag, and the Irish tricolour on the infobox as it more correctly represents the flags in use during the time period for the published collections. SvareJM 20:47, 25 June 2018 (UTC).
