Category:Pigeons in artEdit

There is a Category:Doves in art, too. Aren't doves and pigeons the same? So both Categories should merge in to one

  1. move Category:Doves in art to Category:Pigeons in art or
  2. move Category:Pigeons in art to Category:Doves in art or
  3. merge Category:Doves in art and Category:Pigeons in art to Category:Doves and Pigeons in art or Category:Pigeons and Doves in art

Same request goes for the Subcategories Category:Pigeons in heraldry and Category:Doves in heraldry -- 16:09, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

As far as Heraldry is concerned, I think that they should be merged in one category of pigeons, with 2 exceptions, if the blazon specifically calls for it. The 2 being "The dove of peace" and "a dove descending from (the) heaven(s). Kiltpin (talk) 18:32, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
I clearly propose to merge Doves to Pigeons. -- ΠЄΡΉΛΙΟ 18:43, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
I quote ΠЄΡΉΛΙΟ. --Massimop (talk) 20:48, 8 November 2012 (UTC)


because so far it goes for Doves to Pigeons with the exception of Christian Symbolic (may that go for Islamic, too?). Here are some other Categories to fit with it:

  1. Category:Doves on stamps --> Category:Pigeons on stamps
  2. Category:Eucharistic doves --> Category:Eucharistic pigeons
  3. Category:Flags with doves --> Category:Flags with pigeons
  4. Category:Doves in Islamic art --> Category:Pigeons in Islamic art (???)
  5. Category:Mosaics of doves --> Category:Mosaics of pigeons
  6. Category:Paintings of doves --> Category:Paintings of pigeons (there are a lot with Christian symbolic: --> Category:Artworks of the Holy-Spirit-Dove or Category:Paintings of the Holy Spirit as a dove/Category:Paintings with the Holy Spirit as a dove)
  7. Category:People with doves in art --> Category:People with pigeons in art
  8. Category:Reliefs of doves --> Category:Reliefs of pigeons
  9. Category:Stained glass windows of doves --> Category:Stained glass windows of pigeons !! they are all of symbolic character !! divide into two categories?
  10. Category:Statues of doves --> Category:Statues of pigeons
  11. Category:Symbolic doves --> Category:Symbolic pigeons
  12. Category:Doves in heraldry --> Category:Pigeons in heraldry
  13. Category:Dove repellents --> Category:Pigeon repellents


1) a dove descending from (the) heaven(s)Edit

The only exception so far is the Dove as a religious symbol for the Holy Spirit. And these Categories should all become part of Category:Doves in Christianity that may be named Category:Symbolic doves in Christianity, Category:Doves as Christian Symbol or Category:Doves with Christian symbolism, something like that.

and may refer to
2) The dove of peaceEdit
