Wikipedia: Wiki. Project Flag Template - Wikipedia. This Wiki. Project is responsible for the template system used to create flag icons, with or without associated wikilinks. This project is only concerned with the implementation of these templates. Main templates. The image has a link to the article associated with the flag. Example. The icon image does not have a link (unlike flagicon) so that screen readers do not render the name twice.
Example. This template should be used in articles with WP: OVERLINK concerns (e. Useful when the input parameter can be a country code, or is a long- form country name because it links to a different article, such as for a historical country. Compare with flag, which always uses the first parameter as display name (unless when overridden with name): Displays a flag of the named parameter in . This template is very similar to Template: Flagicon, except the image is not linked to an article, i. This template can be used when the article text immediately adjacent to the icon provides the associated link for the flag. Comparison example. Usage examples. This is a mixed blessing; some country codes (like .
Also, the shortcut templates do not offer the ability to use historical flag variants (described below), and are therefore less flexible. Example. This (probably incomplete) list excludes the military (see #Military flag templates) and sports templates (see #National sport team flag templates). See each template's documentation for more details.

The Canadian Duality Flag (also called the Canadian Unity Flag) is an unofficial flag that was originally circulated to demonstrate the unity of Canada during the lead-up to the 1995 Quebec referendum, at rallies for the 'no.
The following templates do not technically use the flag template system, but are used similarly: Flag names. These actually identify additional templates that individually store information specific to that country. For example, the image name and main article name used by . The complete set of these . Some examples are: Alias names. For example, instead of . A small handful of other well- known abbreviations are also available (such as UK, EU, and USSR).
Alias names are implemented as redirects in the template namespace. For example, Template: Country data VEN is a redirect to Template: Country data Venezuela. The complete set of these redirects is listed in Category: Country data redirects, and the available alias redirect(s) for a given country data template (if any) are also documented on that template's page.
When using country code aliases, template flag will display this value for the wikilink's display text. For example: Note that in each case, the target wikilink points to the correct article name (i. United States, United Kingdom, and People's Republic of China, respectively) but the display text matches the input parameter to template flag. This may be the desired effect, such as in column headings of a large table, but if the full name is wanted, then use Template: Flagcountry instead: Alias names have a second purpose, which is to provide alternative display text for target wikilinks.
For example, the main article linked by Template: Country data East Germany is East Germany, but Template: Country data German Democratic Republic is a redirect alias. Therefore, you can use . Again, note that the target article name for the generated wikilink is still East Germany. Flag variants. The flag template system can accommodate this by storing multiple flag variants inside country data templates. A specific flag variant is selected by specifying an additional parameter to any of the standard flag templates. This parameter is usually given as the second positional parameter to the template, but may also be given as the variant named parameter. Examples. The set of available flag variants (if any) for a specific country data template are documented on the country data template page itself.
Each variant is identified by a short text label, such as empire or 1. Usually, the label identifies the year in which the flag was introduced, but this is not a mandatory style convention. Other common parameters. That is, the icon will be no more than 2.
These dimensions were carefully chosen to generate the best results when flagicons are used in a bulleted list with the default browser text size. Some countries (mostly those with square or near- square flags) have different default sizes.
In certain situations, it might be desirable to use a larger (or smaller) size, and this is enabled with the size named parameter, available with all standard templates. Examples. The display text of the target wikilink is usually automatically generated, but can always be over- ridden with the name parameter. Examples. Military flag templates. Note that the naval ensign for many countries is the same as the national flag.
Also note that the WP: SHIPS and WP: MILHIST conventions are to use naval ensigns, not naval jacks when identifying ships with flag icons. Examples. Displays a country's army or war flag (the army variant) and a wikilink to the country's army. Examples. Displays a country's air force flag (the air force variant) and a wikilink to the country's air force. Examples. National sport team flag templates. Several sets of sport- specific templates have been developed to also use this flag template system: These templates have intentionally been given terse names because they tend to be used many, many times on individual pages for match results.
They completely supersede a set of previously used national team- specific templates. This formatting style is often used in match resultswith a - big. This formatting style is often used in tables of tournament results. For example, for football, the following templates are used: User preference to disable display of flag icons. A CSS class is used within the internal formatting template, and the class setting can be changed from a user's personal CSS file (skin- specific, cross- skin, or global).
Flag icon image rendering is disabled by. In the previous example of . The first parameter to the country data template is actually the name of the formatting template. This is the mechanism by which the same country data template can be used with multiple different formatting templates.
Therefore, the first step of expansion results in. Going back to the simpler example of . The empty boilerplate for all country data templates is as follows. Omission of these lines from the country data template would cause the size and name functionality to be disabled. Adding flag variants.
The unique label for the variant is the suffix of the parameter name, as flag alias- label (don't forget the hyphen). For example, Template: Country data Mexico has several flag variants, one of which is specified by. The selection of the flag variant is coded in the formatting templates. Country data templates with at least one flag variant (in addition to the default) must also have the following line. Omission of this line will cause the flag variant selection to fail. Disabling image border.
See Template: Country data Poland for examples of this usage. Due to the coding of the flag templates, disabling the border for the main flag also automatically disables it for all flag variants. If the main flag should not have a border but any of the variants should, the respective . For example, Template: Country data Russia contains alias = Russia, which results in a target wikilink to Russia.
However, there are instances where the main article name contains a disambiguation string. For example, Template: Country data Georgia contains alias = Georgia (country). Note that the wikilink is Georgia (country), but the display string is . The shortname alias parameter should be set to the desired text string, such as shortname alias = Georgia. In effect, the resultant wikilink will be generated as . For example, to link to the education system in a table comparing different countries' educational outcomes, use. For example, Template: cr appends .
However, in some instances these can be over- ridden by additional parameters within the country data template. The default wikilink can also be changed in cases where the common naming convention is not used. Some examples: In each of these examples, the over- ride parameter (name alias- football, flag alias- field hockey, or link alias- netball) is identified by a unique per- sport variable that is passed from the appropriate sport team template. For example, Template: fb includes altvar = football. Therefore, any country data template that utilizes one or more team sport over- ride parameters must also include. Recall that the first line of each country data template is an invocation to a formatting template, defaulting to country showdata if that parameter is missing: For simple country data templates, nothing further needs to be done to document them. If any flag variants, redirect aliases, etc.
These extra parameters are enclosed in a < noinclude>..< /noinclude> section as they should not be present for any other invocation of the country data template. See Template: Country showdata/doc for more information about how to document country data templates.
