Description

Displays a flag of the named parameter in "icon" size, currently 22x20 pixels plus a one pixel border. The image also has an alt attribute (usually "Flag of name"), which is displayed by Internet Explorer when hovering over the flag image, or interpreted by screen reader software and browsers with images disabled.

Usage

{{flagicon|name|variant=|size=}}

name
The first parameter is mandatory, and identifies the name of the country, region, city, etc. A full list of available parameters can be found in Category:Country data templates. For example, Template:Country data Canada is used when the name parameter is specified as Canada. Many flags are also available via shortened "aliases", such as standard three letter country codes as specified by ISO 3166-1 alpha-3, IOC, or FIFA. Many of these country codes could be considered obscure, so it is recommended to use the full country name.
variant
The second parameter is optional, and identifies a flag variant to be used instead of the standard flag. This is most often used for historical flags but can also be used to specify naval flags, sport-use flags, etc. The list of available flag variants for each country is documented on the specific page for the country data template. For example, Template:Country data Canada includes a description of each of the available flag variations for Canada. This parameter can be a named parameter (e.g. "variant=1815"), or a positional parameter, always after the country name.
size
This parameter is optional, and is used to specify the maximum width and/or height of the flag image. This parameter is specified using standard image syntax.

Examples

Wikicode Results Notes
{{flagicon|Canada}} Canada
{{flagicon|CAN}} Canada Uses the ISO/IOC/FIFA country code

Implementation notes

This template uses the data templates which contain the data what to display and the formatter Template:Country flagicon2, which contains the logic how to display the flag.

Inside each country data template, this template uses the following parameters:

  • flag alias — name of the image file to display
  • flag alias-xxxx — name of the image file of flag variant xxxx
  • alias — used to display the alt attribute of the image (defaults to "Flag of alias")

Related templates

  • Template:flag is used to display a wikilinked name next to the flag. The displayed name will be the same as the parameter used with the template, but the link target will be the main article for the country (in these examples, Canada).
