I can easily get a left aligned "flair" from my SX profile page under "flair" menu. Like this:

enter image description here


  1. How can I get a right aligned one like the following?

  2. How to change its background?

Edit: Now I know that, from @MartijnPieters's answer, individual SX sites offer several options to choose. Updated questions are:

  1. Can we further custom it besides default several ones?

  2. How about the network flair?

The Stack Exchange flairs come with multiple pre-set background colour themes.

Mysticial didn't customize the flair, but simply picked one of 4 options:

  • Default:
  • Clean:
  • Dark:
  • Hot dog stand:

The image urls only differ in the ?theme= parameter, options clean, dark and hotdog.

See the flair link in your Stack Overflow profile.

For the network-wide flair the same options exist, but are not documented. Add the ?theme= parameter manually:

  • Default:
  • Clean (add ?theme=clean):
  • Dark (add ?theme=dark):
  • Hot dog stand (add ?theme=hotdog):
  • 2
    Actually, the network flair supports theme options too. It's just undocumented. Feb 10, 2014 at 8:44
