Iconography is a unified visual language that can be understood by people from different locations and cultures. While the project branding is clearly defined, we provide several icon themes in order to blend as best as possible into the various operating systems and desktop environments. The icon themes should nevertheless convey the LibreOffice style clearly and have a consistent look and feel.
