Flags Helper

Version: v0.2
Author: Demostenes Garcia (me [at] /


This is a CodeIgniter Helper. It makes a dropdown select with a list of Countries. The value of the country is determined by the ‘ISO 3166-1 alpha-2’ codes.
It’s a perfect solution if you need a list of countries usable with the famfamfam flags.

I also added the fam fam fam flags in gif format.


It’s quite simple:
# We load the helper

# Then we echo the dropdown. The first value is the name of the dropdown and the second value is the default value.
echo select_countries(‘flags’, ‘pa’);
