... so that it looks exactly like it does here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:PD-NZ-Crown , or, is it not possible?

Many thanks in advance if you can help :)

Check with Chris if its ok. It was a anti template movement in march this year ;-) inside Wikitree see what-do-you-think-this-template-guidelines-policy-page-draft

If its ok ==>

  1. Ask someone who has the right to create templates (normally leaders)
  2. Looks like this template also use imbox template

 

Thanks Magnus :)

I tried copying that template thingy from that editing page: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Template:PD-NZ-Crown&action=edit  and pasting it but it didn't work, a lot of that stuff is gobbeldygook to me :o In the end I just added to the image description - "This image from New Zealand is in the public domain both in New Zealand and in other countries adhering to international copyright treaties, because New Zealand Crown copyright has a 50-year term under Section 26(3)(b) of the Copyright Act 1994 if the image was produced before 1945. All these images are therefore public domain since 1995. See Crown copyright." ... although the links didn't work like they have just now in this copying and paste!

Someone with permissions (like me) needs to create a template. But status today is that Chris the father of Wikitree is not a big friend of Templates ( I think we should use them more but understand that some templates could make it impossible for other people to edit....

Wait until you get a response for a Go is my suggestion... for me it took 3 months to get a maybe ;-)
I'll do that. Cheers Magnus :)
This is something similar.  I think it's legal as it's all in Wikicode.

If you just paste it in, it's not technically a template.

 

{| border=2
|-
|
{| cellpadding=5
|-
| valign=center |[[Image:No-copyright_symbol.png|52px]]||valign=center|<center>''This image from New Zealand is in the '''public domain''' both in New Zealand and in other countries adhering to international copyright treaties, because its author died more than 50 years ago. See the [http://www.legislation.govt.nz/act/public/1994/0143/latest/DLM345634.html Copyright Act 1994].''</center>||valign=center|[[Image:Flags-19.png|80px]]
|}
|}

you can also add it to a free space page and use 
{{Space: xxxx}}

My understanding in WikiTree land that the argument not using templates is that it gets complex for some people to edit/add something like this 

{{ PD-NZ-Crown}}

If the Workaround is a lot of markup then I would see no argument for not using templates....  

Thank you R J Horrace, and again thank you to you too Magnus, both really helpful, and appreciated :)

Just noticed the Wikipedia version has different versions of the text, depending on the reason.  The Crown 50-year rule version should have been

Hi Nicky

WikiTree has categories with flag images. The flag for NZ is in Category: Oceania Flag Images.  

You can use WikiTree's {{Image}} template to display images, eg:

{{Image
|file=Flags-19.png
|align=r
|size=200
|label=This image from New Zealand is in the '''public domain''' both in New Zealand and in other countries adhering to international copyright treaties, because New Zealand Crown copyright has a 50-year term under Section 26(3)(b) of the Copyright Act 1994.
|link=http://www.legislation.govt.nz/act/public/1994/0143/latest/DLM345634.html
|caption=NewZealand Flag
}}
