[edit] [history] [purge] 50px Template documentation

This template is used to display a small flag icon next to a wikilinked country name. It is related to the {{flagicon}} and {{flagcountry}} templates, but offers more options in terms of the text string displayed.

See Wikipedia:WikiProject Flag Template for the main documentation/discussion page for the flag templates system.

Usage

{{flag|country identifier|optional variant|name=alternative text string}}

  • country identifier is the common name of the country (e.g. "United States"), a common alias (e.g. "US"), or a standard country code such as those listed at ISO 3166-1 alpha-3
  • variant is an optional second parameter that can be used to display a flag variation, such as a historical flag. The list of variants for each country is documented on the appropriate template page, such as Template:Country data Germany
  • alternative text string, specified by the name parameter, is used to display alternative text

See the prefix index for the templates latently called by this one.
