Ethnic Flags
Managed By: Icon Here Ethnic Flags
This group will seek out and record examples of flags that represent ethnic or language related groups that is not a political/governmental division.
Expanded Description:
In general, flags in this category must represent and identify a specific ethnic group and not be a flag of general nature or a flag sponsored for a cause. Flags must be mounted for public display, usually on a flag pole which may be either freestanding or mounted on a building or other structure. Flags that are mounted on a flat surface, draped, or used in a decorative fashion are not eligible.

All flags must be on permanent display at an identifiable location. Flags put up for special events or other temporary purposes are not eligible.

Instructions for Posting a Ethnic Flags Waymark:
COORDINATES: Personally obtained coordinates must be obtained as close to the actual flag as possible. Coordinates should NOT be taken at, or from viewing areas unless access to the actual flag location is somehow restricted. If the flag is mounted on a building, coordinates must be at the entrance to the building, or other reasonable part of the building.

At least TWO photographs must be submitted. One should show the flag and its background showing the building or location where it is displayed. The second photo must be a clear close-up showing all of the flag's symbol and design - clearly distinguishable and readable.
We realize that these photos are difficult to obtain, requiring the right wind conditions, a good viewing point, and a lot of patience! If your photos are not up to standard, don't submit the waymark, but try again for that special photo.
While we don't expect professional photography, waymarks submitted with underexposed, blurred, skewed or otherwise poor quality photos may be declined. All photos must be the waymarker's original photos and be placed in the photo gallery for the waymark.

DESCRIPTIONS: Keep in mind that the quick description is what people see when browsing, so do your best to give a succinct description that will give people at a glance an overview of the waymark.

LANGUAGE NOTE: We recognize waymarking as a global hobby and welcome waymarks from all countries. We encourage bilingual and multilingual waymarks and because of our international scope, we acknowledge ENGLISH as our lingua franca. English will facilitate the broadest accessibility globally, therefore all waymarks are required to have an ENGLISH translation in the long and short descriptions.

The name of the waymark MUST follow this format:
Name of Site - City, State, Country
(Métis Flag - Winnipeg, MAN, Canada

If the site is not within a city or town, then please use another regional designation - whatever best identifies the location of the site.
