{{country data {{{1}}} | flaglink/core | variant = | size = | name = | altlink = {{{2}}}


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



Produces a flag icon attached to a wikilinked article. The name of the country is the prefix of the wikilink, but the display text is just the name of the country by itself.

For example, {{flaglink|Brazil|at the 2007 Pan American Games}} has the same effect as {{flagdeco|Brazil}} [[Brazil at the 2007 Pan American Games|Brazil]], both producing:  Brazil.

  • nation — Use the name of the country/region as per the set of templates in Category:Country data templates or an "alias" (such as a three-letter country code) as per the set of templates in Category:Country data redirects
  • link — Specifies the suffix to append to the country's name to form the wikilink
  • variant (optional) — Specifies an alternate (historical) flag to use. This parameter is documented by the appropriate country data template. This label can be specified as a named parameter, or as the third positional parameter.
  • size (optional) — Can be used to change the flag icon size (use sparingly!)
  • name (optional) — Can be used to change the wikilink display text
