Country symbol

Also known as

Flag, Country

Country symbols display an icon that represents the flag of a country or intergovernmental organization. You can use country symbols individually or as a complete package. The country symbols are stylized and representative, so users are more likely to recognize them at smaller sizes, and they maintain their character within the circular form.

If you're using a country symbol for decorative purposes, and the country is named in accompanying text, hide its label from screen readers to avoid repetition. To hide the label, pass aria-hidden=”true”.
