English: Categories are not added as parameters of the template but can easily be added after the template as indicated above.

You can choose how the file will be sorted in categories by adding "{{DEFAULTSORT:xxx}}" with xxx replaced by the name of the coat of arms.

You can also add the categories "Coats of arms of yyy" and "SVG coats of arms - zzz" by adding [[Category:Coats of arms of yyy]] and [[Category:SVG coats of arms - zzz]].
Français : Les catégories ne sont pas ajoutées grâce à des paramètres du modèle, mais peuvent aisément être ajoutées manuellement, comme indiqué:

{{DEFAULTSORT:xxx}} permet de donner le nom (xxx) qui servira pour le classement alphabétique dans chaque catégorie.

Il est possible d'ajouter les catégories Coats of arms of yyy et SVG coats of arms – zzz en ajoutant [[Category:Coats of arms of yyy]] et [[Category:SVG coats of arms - zzz]]

Template parameters

Parameter Description Default Status
blasonxx
City or family name that coat of arms identifies; xx can be any language code unspecified in English; blank in other languages required
blasonnement-xx
Blazon or literal description of the coat of arms; xx can be any language code unspecified in all languages required
ref-xx
Book, Web site or other source of the blazon; xx can be any language code empty required
Description
Always add an English section, even if blank (Commons has more users in English than in any other language, so the odds are that someone will be able to fill this section in). Sections in other languages are added only if "blasonxx" is filled in for the language in question. This should be done only when at least some information is available in the language in question (such as an article link for the city/family and/or a translation of the blazon). Do not add all language sections empty, as this just wastes space and makes it more difficult to edit the image description page. The language most appropriate for the coat of arms in question should be listed first, as the "master" record, though all language sections will appear in alphabetical order in the rendered page. For editing ease, keep all three of each language's blazon description parameters together, and separate each language with a blank line in the wikisource.

In the "blasonxx" parameter (e.g. "blasonen" for English), give the city, family or other entity to whom the coat of arms (escutcheon) or crest applies or applied. When possible, link this to an existing article at the language-specific Wikipedia appropriate for the section.

In the "blasonnement-xx" parameter (e.g. "blasonnement-en" for English), give the blazon (the verbal heraldic specification of the coat of arm) in the appropriate language (e.g. English, in this example). The original blazon in the original language should be given in that language's section, with translations provided in other languages, using the heraldic terminology of that language. Heraldic terms likely to be unfamiliar or confusing to many readers may be explained, or the entire blazon translated, in modern terms in [brackets].

In the "ref-xx" parameter (e.g. "ref-en"), add the source (book, website, …) that has been used to obtain the blazon information. If the source is in another language, give the original title, then a [bracketed] translation of it, if available.
empty optional
Date
This parameter has to be filled as in the template {{Information}}. It is the date of creation of the image as originally uploaded, and may also provide the date of the original coat of arms design or approval, if this is known. empty required
Source
Source of the COA, e.g. {{own}}. empty required
figure#
Up to five other images on commons (heraldic figures, ordinaries, etc.) that were used to assemble the coat of arms image can be separately credited by using "figure1", "figure2", "figure3", "figure4", "figure5". empty optional
user#
For each source image, their author (or commentaries) can be added by "user1", "user2", … (with internal links) empty optional
Author
This parameter has to be filled as in the template {{Information}}. It should list the creator of the image, with a "User:" link if applicable, and may also provide the name of the original designer of the coat of arms if this information is available. empty required
Colors 1 to 10 color letters, separated by "pipes", see the description at the documentation of {{FIAV1}} empty optional
Permission
This parameter has to be filled as in the template {{Information}}, and should use language templates (e.g. {{en}}, {{fr}}, etc.) as appropriate. Special notes can go here, such as restrictions applicable under heraldic rather than copyright law. Don't type something like "see below", that is complete witless and of not any use. empty optional
Other versions
This parameter has to be filled as in the template {{Information}}, see there. empty optional
ink
Add any value to show {{Created with Inkscape}} template empty optional
cre
val
err
sub
key
Instead of parameter "ink": subparam(s) for {{Inkscape}}, see its {{docu}}
Any one of these parameters transcludes the {{Inkscape}} template
"cre" can specify the creating user: {{U|creator}}
"val" is defaulted with "v" (valid)
empty optional

Le modèle {{COAInformation/fr}} peut être utilisé pour les blasons réalisés dans le cadre du Projet Blasons de la Wikipédia francophone.

The template {{COAInformation/fr}} may be used for coats of arms made for the Blazon Project of French-speaking Wikipedia.

The main template page doesn't autotranslate itself by default, because the text doesn't depend on interface language, only on text language.


Français : Syntaxe d'utilisation :
  • Source:

Cinq images (meubles, pièces) ayant été utilisées pour réaliser le dessin peuvent être citées en utilisant "figure1", "figure2", "figure3", "figure4", "figure5". Pour chaque image, leur auteur (ou des commentaires) peuvent être ajoutés par "user1", "user2", …
Le modèle "Created with Inkscape" peut être ajouté grâce au paramètre "|ink=oui"; la catégorie "Created with Inkscape" sera alors également ajoutée.

  • Author, Date, Permission, Other versions

Ces champs sont remplis comme dans le modèle {{Information}}.
