Air force ensign

This template includes an air force ensign flag variant that can be used with Template:Air force:

  • {{air force|United States of America}}


{{air force|nation|variant|size=optional|name=optional}}

Produces a flag icon attached to a wikilinked national air force article.

  • nation — Use either the name of the nation or the three-letter ISO 3166-1 alpha-3 country code
  • variant (optional) — Specifies an alternate (historical) flag to use. This parameter is documented by the appropriate template in Category:Country data templates. Note that the standard behaviour of this template is to use the air force variant if present, so there is no need to specify this variant in the template call.
  • size (optional) — Can be used to change the flag icon size
  • name (optional) — Can be used to change the wikilink display text


Other related templates

The {{flagicon}} template can be used to display the air force flag by itself, using the air force variant as a template parameter:

  • {{flagicon|UK|air force}}Flag of the United Kingdom

Implementation notes

By default, this template shows the standard national flag for the selected country, following by a wikilink to "Country Air Force". Both of these items can be changed by adding specific parameters to the appropriate country_data template (complete set found in Category:Country data templates).

To use a different flag, such as the air force ensign for the nation, use:

flag alias-air force = image name of air force ensign

To use a different name for the wikilinked air force article, use:

link alias-air force = article name

  • {{flagicon|United States of America|air force}} → [[Image:{{{flag alias-air force}}}|22x20px|border|Flag of the United States]]

This template can also be used via an alias name (implemented as a redirect to this template):
