This template is used to display a route shield.

  • The first parameter is the system the route is in
    • For states in the US, use the state postal code
    • For US Interstate Highways, use "I"
    • For Trans Canadian Highways, use "TCH"
    • For other national highways, use the internet country code (ex. DE for Germany, CN for China)
    • If the route is not a number, use the name of the route
  • The second parameter is the number of the route (left blank if there isn't one)
  • The third parameter is the size and it is optional (do not include "px")

To display just the name of the file (for routeboxes), use 0 for the third parameter.

  • Many route icon images are not uploaded yet so those will not work
  • If there is a route icon image uploaded and it doesn't work, you can add it to the list on Template:Routeicon/switch or leave a post on the talk page.
