Notes[edit]

This template will add a bullet in front of the entry.

Related templates[edit]

This template is actually a hold over from when I created the Places I Have Been section of my user page. I now have two more advanced versions that simplify the call. They will look the correct flag image and Nation or Province name up. All you pass to identify the nation or province is a short code (normally two letters).

You can use this template if you prefer the extra flexiblity. However, I no longer use it directly. Rather I use the templates listed below. They in turn call this template for you.
