The <object> tag is an HTML tag and used to display multimedia like audios, videos, images, PDFs, and Flash in web pages. It can also be used for displaying another webpage inside the HTML page. 
The <param> tag is also used along with this tag to define various parameters. Any text that is written within <object> and </object> tags are considered as an alternative text that appears when the data specified is not supported by the browser. 
This tag supports all Global and Event attributes of HTML.
