The FIGURE tag is newly introduced in HTML5 and is used to group or annotate various diagrams, images, illustrations, and code snippets.

You can define various tags, such as IMG, CODE, and PRE, inside the FIGURE tag. The FIGCAPTION tag is used inside the FIGURE tag to provide the caption of the content.
