<svg>

The svg element can be used to embed an SVG fragment inside the current document (for example, an HTML document). This SVG fragment has its own viewport and coordinate system.

Usage context

Example

Consider the following SVG image (representing the national flag of Italy):

<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" 
     width="150" height="100" viewBox="0 0 3 2">

  <rect width="1" height="2" x="0" fill="#008d46" />
  <rect width="1" height="2" x="1" fill="#ffffff" />
  <rect width="1" height="2" x="2" fill="#d2232c" />
</svg>

It could be included in an HTML5 document as follows:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <meta charset="UTF-8" />
  <title>HTML/SVG Example</title>
</head>

<body>

  <svg width="150" height="100" viewBox="0 0 3 2">
    <rect width="1" height="2" x="0" fill="#008d46" />
    <rect width="1" height="2" x="1" fill="#ffffff" />
    <rect width="1" height="2" x="2" fill="#d2232c" />
  </svg>

</body>
</html>
