The flood-color attribute indicates what color to use to flood the current filter primitive subregion.

Note: As a presentation attribute, flood-color can be used as a CSS property.

As a presentation attribute, it can be applied to any element but it has effect only on the following two elements: <feFlood> and <feDropShadow>

<svg viewBox="0 0 420 200" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
  <filter id="flood1">
    <feFlood flood-color="skyblue" x="0" y="0" width="200" height="200"/>
  <filter id="flood2">
    <feFlood flood-color="seagreen" x="0" y="0" width="200" height="200"/>

  <rect x="0" y="0" width="200" height="200" style="filter: url(#flood1);" />
  <rect x="0" y="0" width="200" height="200" style="filter: url(#flood2); transform: translateX(220px);" />
