FamFamFam Flags icon pack, as individual icons or as a CSS spritesheet
Flags icon pack, as available on famfamfam website.
All credits for these icons go to their original author: Mark James (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The aim of this project is to make this icon pack available through various package managers, such as:
All icons are supplied in both PNG and GIF formats.
A flag has been added to the original package:
This flag was created by Damien Guard (@damieng) (email@example.com), in the "add-on" package for FamFamFam icons named Silk Companion.
The project now supports aliases in CSS spritesheets (see below). The feature was brought by @Rangoo94. For example,
RE (Reunion) is an alias for
FR (France), since Reunion shares the same flag as France. To see the aliases, please check the aliases.json file.
You can insert the icons directly into your HTML with a common IMG tag:
<img alt="French Flag" src="dist/png/fr.png" width="16" height="11">
In addition to the icons by themselves, this project also ships a CSS spritesheet for the icon-pack. This spritesheet allows to load the entire icon-pack in just 1 image, and thus reduce HTTP calls.
This is what it actually looks:
All the positioning of the icons inside this alone image is made through CSS, which allows you to just add block-type tags with the proper class and get the same result:
<div class="famfamfam-flags fr"></div>
Just remember to add the CSS stylesheet to the HEAD of your HTML page!
npm install famfamfam-flags
bower install famfamfam-flags
composer require legacy-icons/famfamfam-flags

with NPM 3.x.x (resolve dependencies for
node-spritesheet before this module's ones)
npm install grunt grunt-contrib-coffee grunt-contrib-clean
then be sure that you have ImageMagick installed for building spritesheet.

If, for example you just want
gg icons in a spritesheet, you just have to fork this project, point your CLI to the working directory,
src directory, except
gg icons in PNG format, and then run the
gulp build task.
You'll get the proper spritesheet and copies of the icons directly in the
