Flag Images Build status

An image set of world flags.


As with all image sets, these are available via the Image Service.

Getting these flags in a different format/size

The Image Service will convert these images on the fly if you pass in the right parameters. To find out more about this, please see the Image Service documentation

Adding or modifying flags

To keep flags consistent, please follow these guidelines:

  • Flags must be SVG format
  • Flags must be in a 4:3 aspect ratio
  • Flags must be named according to their ISO ALPHA-2 country
  • Flag names must be lower case
    • good: jp.svg, gb.svg
    • bad: japan.svg, JP.svg, jp

Please do not delete flags without talking to the Origami team who will need to manage the deprecation process
