Usage

Given an ISO country code (ISO 3166-1 alpha-2), this template returns the matching country.

It has two optional parameters:

  • |article=, which if it set to yes will return the article "the" if needed;
  • |mode=, which can optionally take one out of three values:
  • if set to sort, it will rearrange for sortkey.
  • if set to unique, it will return " (country)" if needed.
  • if set to link, it will create a link.
