This template inserts a red X inline in the text. It is often used as the opposite of {{Tick}}.


This template inserts an inline red diagonal cross (X) image, indicating negation (or some other negatory message: rejection, failure, etc.). It is not for use in articles.

The cross image defaults to 20px in size. To change the size, call with a pixel value as an argument, such as:


The |color= or |colour= parameter can be used to change the color of the X:

color codes output notes
red rd r the default
darkred dkred drd dr
orange or o
yellow yel y
black blk k
grey gray gry gy is actually semi-transparent
