That is part of our evil plan.  We tell people that Freeciv is a game
of world domination.  Little do they know...

This is answered in the Freeciv FAQ, available from our website:

Those graphics were stolen from the Microprose Civilization game,
and were certainly not released by the Freeciv team.  We
can't endorse the use (=theft) of these graphics with Freeciv.  I
suppose I should take this link off the links page.

If you want better graphics, you or someone else will have to
draw them.  Mind you, a number of people have submitted graphics
which are a modest improvement.  I've just got to get around to
getting them incorporated into the official Freeciv.
