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

This template family is used to display a small flag and name of a country, with a wikilink to the country's page for the specified multi-sport event.

Usage[change source]


  • code is the three-letter country code used by the IOC, CGF, or FINA.
  • games is a string with slightly different forms depending on the template used:
    • {{flagIOC2}} takes values in the form <year> <games>, or just <games>
    • {{flagIOC}} and {{flagIPC}} use <year> Summer, <year> Winter, or just Summer or Winter
    • Games-specific templates such as {{flagCGF}}, {{flagPASO}}, etc, simply take the <year>. See below for a full list of supported "shortcut" templates
The intent is that this template can be used from medal tables and event result tables to point to the right country page. Also, the correct historical flag is chosen based on this string, for countries that had different flags in the past.
  • athletes is the number of athletes that the nation contributed to the specific Olympics. It is an optional argument, and will render a small (#) after the nation's name.

Examples[change source]

In addition to using historical flags when appropriate, the specific name of the games will be selected when appropriate.
