A collection of all country flags in SVG β€” plus the CSS for easier integration See the demo.

Install

You can either download the whole project as is or install it via Bower or NPM:

$ bower install flag-icon-css
$ npm install flag-icon-css
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Usage

For using the flags inline with text add the classes .flag-icon and .flag-icon-xx (where xx is the ISO 3166-1-alpha-2 code of a country) to an empty <span>. If you want to have a squared version flag then add the class flag-icon-squared as well. Example:

<span class="flag-icon flag-icon-gr"></span>
<span class="flag-icon flag-icon-gr flag-icon-squared"></span>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

You could also apply this to any element, but in that case you'll have to use the flag-icon-background instead of flag-icon and you're set. This will add the correct background with the following CSS properties:

background-size

πŸ† Mermaid was nominated and won the JS Open Source Awards (2019) in the category "The most exciting use of technology"!!!

Thanks to all involved, people committing pull requests, people answering questions! πŸ™

About

Mermaid is a Javascript based diagramming and charting tool that uses Markdown-inspired text definitions and a renderer to create and modify complex diagrams. The main purpose of Mermaid is to help documentation catch up with development.

Doc-Rot is a Catch-22 that Mermaid helps to solve.

Diagramming and documentation costs precious developer time and gets outdated quickly But not having diagrams or docs ruins productivity and hurts organizational learning.
Mermaid addresses this problem by cutting the time, effort and tooling that is required to create modifiable diagrams and charts, for smarter and more reusable content The text definitions for Mermaid diagrams allows for it to be updated easily, it can also be made part of production…
