This is a collection of various technical icons, glyphs, logos and other imagery all in SVG format. The icons are mainly Azure related but there are various other brands and logos plus abstract/generic symbols.
All files are run through SVGO to clean them up and optimize them, with ‘removeDimensions’ plugin enabled
Many overlaps exist between the three main Azure icon sets, this expected, but each set also has unique icons hence their reason for inclusion. Condensing down to one merged super-set would be a huge undertaking

- Added the new official icon set from the Azure Architecture Center
- Renamed the previous ‘azure-icons’ set to ‘azure-cds’, and the above Azure Architecture Center icons are now called ‘azure-icons’. This is confusing, sorry!

Core Azure Sets
‘Official’ Azure Icons Set
This set is the official downloadable collection from the Azure Architecture Center, the best place to look if you’re after an Azure service or common Azure related icon. The set has been flattened (no sub-directories) and superfluous prefixes removed from the filenames
Scraped from main Azure docs site, all major Azure services are in here plus a couple of other useful icons. It’s a smallish set and a good place to start if you require an icon for a top level Azure service.
‘CDS’ Azure Icons Set
This set comprises the “Microsoft Azure Icon Repository” from the Microsoft Cloud Design Studio. There is an almost complete overlap with the above two sets, however there’s some unique icons in here, and icons from the Azure portal which aren’t anywhere else.
Azure Patterns Collection
Very large set of 1200+ icons including many Azure services, but mostly focused on other concepts, actions and gyphs. This has been scraped from https://azure.microsoft.com/en-gb/patterns/styles/glyphs-icons/ This is made public, as part of the “Sundog” Azure.com design system.
Logos & Brands
Various product, company & programing language logos, hand picked & fetched from various sources online. Theses may or may not be directly Azure related
Many other Azure & Microsoft icons sourced from various places; Azure.com pages, Azure Docs git repo, Azure portal etc. Most of these are hand picked or moved here manually, these shouldn’t overlap with the other sets, but may do
