How do I remove or delete a tag from a Git repo?

You can use the git tag command to put a permanent marker on a specific commit. Later, you can use the tag to compare the tagged commit to other, future commits in the future. When you push to your Bitbucket Cloud remote repository, the tag goes along.

Removing a Tag

For example, if you have created a tag called release01 in a Git repository you would remove it from your repository by doing the following:

$ git tag -d release01
$ git push origin :refs/tags/release01

To remove one from a Mercurial repository:

$ hg tag --remove featurefoo
