just to make you aware: there's a known problem that people sometimes see
the banner for a country that they recently visited. This means that many
of you will see the banner for Sweden or Denmark. The vast majority of the
people in your country should see the regular banner for your country
I believe this is a known issue (can't find it on phabricator currently)
and is being worked on.
We have some promotional material from previous years. You can see our
social media feed for examples (promo clip, poster, countdown, etc.):
1. 2018 poster in square form factor for social media:
(It's available in English, Arabic, Spanish and Farsi. I can make one for
you if you send me the right text and also change the dates) I can also
send you the original file (in Pages)
2. Promo clip: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:WLM_Promo_4_5.webm
This is available both in English and Arabic. It's a powerpoint
presentation that I convert to a slideshow.
3. Countdown like this one <https://www.instagram.com/p/BoUMSnAgkVH/> are
again powerpoint files that I can share with you.
Also if you have social media accounts please send me the links so we can
promote them on our own social media channels.

> - Slovenia has xxx monuments, and only xx are illustrated (or some other
