The figure tag is used for self-contained content, like illustrations, diagrams, photos, etc.


The <figure> tag is related to the main flow but its position is independent, meaning if it is removed it should not affect the flow. The <figcaption> tag can be used inside the <figure> tag to add a caption for it.

  <img src="picture.jpg" alt="A picture">
  <figcaption>This is the caption for this picture.</figcaption>
