Description[rætta wikitekst]

This template provides a clicable icon flag with options to define the size, the link and the label. Its usage is especially recommended in articles with many icon flags.

This project is under development. The functionality is solid but you might miss certain flags. See Where is my flag?

Examples: ca:Estats membres de la Unió Europea - ca:Jocs Olímpics - ca:Futbol Club Barcelona - ca:Temporada 2011 de Fórmula 1 - ca:Torneig de Roland Garros 2009

Where is my flag?[rætta wikitekst]

When the template doesn't recognize the name of the flag then it returns 20x22px or Flag of None.svg

Possible reasons:

In these cases, the template makes a last attempt tryingto find "File:Flag of [name].svg" at Commons.

If you find 20x22px or Flag of None.svg please report the problem at Module talk:Flags and we will fix it.

You can also contribute adding names and flags to MasterData (and LocaleData in your non-English wiki), keeping the consistency with Category:Country_data_templates. It's easy and it doesn't require any technical knowledge.

Development[rætta wikitekst]

This template is based on Wikipedia:Lua and is under development. Feedback and feature requests are welcome at en:Module talk:Flags.

The functionality is provided by Module:Flags.

Module:Flags/MasterData must be published as is in any other wiki, and any changes must be synced here.

LocaleData is specific to wikis of each language. Here we have only an example.
