HTML <figure> Tag

The <figure> tag is used for indicating self-contained content. The tag can include images, diagrams, illustrations, code examples, etc.

The content of the <figure> tag is related to the main flow content, however, it is perceived as an autonomous unit.

To add a caption or explanation to the content of the <figure> tag, we use the <figcaption> tag. The <figcaption> tag is included in the <figure> tag and is placed as the first or last child element. If <figcaption> is the first nested element, then the content will be displayed at the top of the image.

Syntax

The tag content is written between the opening (<figure>) and the closing (</figure>) tags.

Example
