To apply this template to a file, first add a new section “Disputed” to the talk page, describing the dispute. Add {{disputed coat of arms|why}} to the top of the disputed coat of arms (replacing "why" with your reason). If the talk page section name is different from “Disputed” (as recommended), then include a link to the section of the talk page discussing the dispute, use {{disputed coat of arms|why|section=talk page section name}}.

If the description of the file seems to be wrong or not to match the content of the file please use {{Fact disputed}}.
