[edit] [purge] Template documentation

The following documentation is transcluded from Template:Army/doc.



Produces a flag icon attached to a wikilinked national army 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) army 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 army 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


  • {{army|United Kingdom}} British Army
  • {{army|USA}} United States Army
  • {{army|CHN}} People's Liberation Army Ground Force
  • {{army|Republic of China}} Republic of China Army
  • {{army|Empire of Japan}} Imperial Japanese Army
  • {{army|Empire of Japan|name=Japan}} Japan
  • {{army|India}} Indian Army
  • {{army|Pakistan}} Pakistan Army

Implementation notes

By default, this template shows the standard national flag for the selected country, following by a wikilink to "Country Army". Either or 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 an army-specific flag for the nation, use:

flag alias-army = image name

To use a different name for the wikilinked army article, use:

link alias-army = article name
