This template is used on approximately 118,000 pages.

Displays the flag identified by the parameter in "icon" size, currently 22x20 pixels plus a one pixel border. This template is very similar to {{flagicon}}, except the image is not linked to an article, i.e. it is "purely decorative" per World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). This template can be used when the article text immediately adjacent to the icon provides the associated link for the flag.
Comparison example
  • {{flagicon|United Nations}}
  • {{flagdeco|United Nations}}
Usage examples
  • {{flagdeco|Portugal}} [[Lisboa]], [[Portugal]]
    Lisboa, Portugal
  • {{flagdeco|Portugal}} [[Portuguese First Republic|Portugal]]
As with {{flagicon}}, a particular variant of the flag and/or a custom size for the icon may be specified using (respectively) |variant= and/or |size=. See {{flagicon}} for further details.
Also as with {{flagicon}}, the display of a redlink when Template:Country data Foo does not exist can be suppressed by using the |noredlink=yes parameter. See {{flagicon}} for further details.
Tracking categories
Where {{Flagdeco|Foo}} is used, but the Template:Country data Foo does not exist, then a redlink is displayed, unless the |noredlink=yes parameter has been set.
Where the redlink is displayed, the page is addded to a tracking category:
Category:Flagdeco with missing country data templates (population: 9)
