{{country data {{{1}}}|flagcountry/core|variant=|size=|name=}}

Description

{{flagcountry|nation|variant|size=}}

Produces a flag icon attached to a wikilinked article. This template is similar to the more widely-used {{flag}} template, but is more useful for two situations described below.

Parameters
  • nation — Use either the name of the nation or in some cases, a three-letter country code (e.g. ISO 3166-1 alpha-3)
  • variant (optional) — Specifies an alternative (historical) flag to use. This parameter is documented by the appropriate template in Category:Country data templates.
  • size (optional) — Can be used to change the flag icon size.

Usage examples

  1. {{flagcountry|ITA}}Template:Country data ITA
  1. In this case, the country code for Italy (ITA) is used to produce the correct flag and wikilink. In many cases, it would probably be preferable to use {{flag}} to produce the same result, such as {{flag|Italy}} for this example. However, {{flagcountry}} could be used within other templates (such as infoboxes) so that country codes can be used for those template parameters.
  2. {{flagcountry|ITA|1861}}Template:Country data ITA
  1. Similar to the first example, but with a flag variant parameter to select a historical flag image. Note that the wikilinked article is [[Italy]].
  2. {{flagcountry|Kingdom of Italy}}Template:Country data Kingdom of Italy
  1. In this example, a different country data template is used, to select an alternative article for the wikilink (in this case, [[Kingdom of Italy (1861–1946)|Italy]]). Compare with {{flag|Kingdom of Italy}}Template:Country data Kingdom of Italy, in which "Kingdom of Italy" is the display text for the wikilink. Therefore, the choice of flagcountry or flag depends on the desired display text; in all other respects, the templates are identical.
