Examples

Code used:Displays as:
{{Migrating Ancestor
|origin= France
|destination= Canada
|origin-flag= Flags.png
|destination-flag= Flags-1.png
}}
Flag of France
... ... ... migrated from France to Canada.
Flag of Canada
{{Migrating Ancestor|destination= Canada|destination-flag= Flags-1.png}}
Flag of an unknown location
... ... ... migrated from an unknown location to Canada.
Flag of Canada


If you would prefer to only use one flag but not have a question mark, you can use the Nonmigrating Ancestor sticker, adding Migrating ancestor text. For example:

|addinfo={{Name}} migrated from an unknown location to Canada.

See the Nonmigrating Ancestor sticker page for details on other variables used by that sticker.

To find the file name for the flag you want see, start your search at Category:Flag_Images. See also Space:Flags, Template:Country Flag/Space:Country Flags, Template:UK Flag, and Template:US Flag.


Approved for use as a Recognition Box, now a Sticker. This template was the model for the Immigrant sticker (now retired) used as a sample during discussions about changing Recognition Boxes and User Boxes to Stickers, see this G2G discussion.
