This template places a small green circle with a plus sign () in the top right corner of an article to indicate that it is a good article on Wikipedia, and that it has met the good article criteria, successfully passing the good article nomination process. It also categorizes them into Category:Good articles.
This template should be placed at the bottom of the article before the defaultsort and categories. It should be removed if a good article fails a good article reassessment nomination, as well as articles that have never passed a good article nomination before. If a good article is subsequently promoted to featured article status, this template is then replaced by Template:Featured article.
