Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template is similar to {{flag}}, with the main difference that it links to the article on the flag rather than the article on the country. The default link is to "Flag of {{{alias}}}", where |alias= is the country article name passed by the country's data template.


Basic parameters[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

  • |1= (first unnamed parameter): Name of country or any other entity. If "Template:Country data ..." exists for that entity, data from that template is used for the link and image.

Image parameters[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

  • |variant= (or second unnamed parameter): Identifies a variant flag image, such as an ensign or a historical flag (for a list of available variants for each entity, see their respective country data templates)
  • |size=: Size of the icon. The default size is 32x21px, which is slightly larger than the default size of {{flag}}, {{flagicon}} etc.
  • |image=: Custom image name without "File:" prefix. If not specified uses an image from the entity's country data template.
  • |border=: Set to nothing to remove the border from a custom image if it's a non-rectangular flag. The border should be automatically deactivated for images from country data templates if necessary (if it isn't the line "|border=" should be added to the data template).

Name and link parameters[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

  • |name=: Display name (doesn't affect linked article name). Defaults to the value of the first unnamed parameter.
  • |prefix=: Set to "yes" to display the "Flag of" prefix.
  • |link=: The article to link to. Defaults to "Flag of |alias=", using the value of |alias= from the country data template. Set to nothing to omit the link entirely and produce only the flag icon. The link is automatically omitted by default if no first parameter is specified (see last three examples).
  • |section=: Links to a section of the linked article
  • |the=: Set to "yes" to add the definite article "the" between "Flag of" and the entity name in the link.
  • |list=: Set to "yes" if the template is used in a vertical list; this ensures the country names are lined up correctly.


  • {{flagof|Germany}} Germany
  • {{flagof|Georgia}} Georgia (automatically links to Flag of Georgia (country) because the country article is at Georgia (country))
  • {{flagof|Ohio}} Ohio (automatically removes the border)
  • {{flagof|Australia|size=23x15px}} Australia (default size for other flag templates)
  • {{flagof|Canada|variant=1921}} Canada (historical flag)
    • Alternatively: {{flagof|Canada|1921}} Canada (shorter)

Customized name and link[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

  • {{flagof|India|variant=British|link=List of Indian flags|section=British India}} India (links to a section of a custom linked article)
    • Alternatively: {{flagof|India|variant=British|link=List of Indian flags#British India}} India (more intuitive)
  • {{flagof|Japan|link=}} (flag icon only; no link)

Customized image[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

  • {{flagof|Spain|image=Flag of Spain (Civil).svg}} Spain (custom image for entity with country data template; consider adding the image to the template as a variant if a template exists)
  • {{flagof|Belfast|image=Flag of Belfast.svg}} Belfast (entity without country data template; uses the first parameter as alias for the link)
  • {{flagof|Denmark|image=Flag of Denmark (state).svg|border=}} Denmark (custom image without border)
  • {{flagof|image=Flag of Gozo.svg}} (no link if there is an image but no first parameter)

Empty image[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

  • {{flagof}} (no parameters at all; uses the empty placeholder flag image from Template:Country data without link)
  • {{flagof|link=Flags of Antarctica|name=Antarctica}} Antarctica (empty image with link; {{noflag}}-like)
    • Alternatively: {{flagof|Antarctica|image=}} Antarctica
