Masthead

Overview

Header that contains your site name, main navigation, search and other function links.

Usage

All .gov.sg digital services shall implement the Official Government Banner (containing the Singapore Government Online Logo) across all pages.


Types

1) Default Masthead

<div class="sgds-masthead">
    <a href="https://www.gov.sg" target="_blank">
        <span class="sgds-icon sgds-icon-sg-crest"></span>
        <span class="is-text">A Singapore Government Agency Website</span>
    </a>
</div>

2) Masthead with language selector

If you require a language selector, add a select element at the right side of the Masthead.

The Masthead language selector should be hidden in mobile view to prevent clashing with the masthead text. However, it should still be accessible in the navigation panel. For example, include the language selector in the main navigation and display it only on mobile views.
<div class="sgds-masthead">
    <div class="sgds-container">
        <div class="row is-mobile">
            <div class="col is-9-desktop is-12-mobile is-flex">
                <a href="https://www.gov.sg" target="_blank">
                    <span class="sgds-icon sgds-icon-sg-crest"></span>
                    <span class="is-text">A Singapore Government Agency Website</span>
                </a>
            </div>
            <div class="col has-text-right is-hidden-mobile">
