I want to put the logo of math.SE to my website linking to my profile, and the template I'm using uses svg versions of the logos; at least if I have the svg version of a logo, I know how to use it in my website, so

How can I get the *.svg version of the logo of math.SE ?

    $\begingroup$ Do you know about "flair"? $\endgroup$ – quid May 26 at 18:12
  • $\begingroup$ @quid No, what is that ? How can I use it to solve my problem ? $\endgroup$ – onurcanbektas May 26 at 19:43
  • $\begingroup$ @quid Oh I know those, but that would not do the job. $\endgroup$ – onurcanbektas May 26 at 19:45
  • $\begingroup$ On the main site, If I right click and save the logo (I assume you mean the one with 6 red squares plus the text 'Mathematics'). It is an 286x32 svg.... $\endgroup$ – achille hui May 26 at 22:40
  • $\begingroup$ When I choose "Inspect" in the browser, I get this file: cdn.sstatic.net/Sites/math/Img/sprites.svg?v=fa2277060fb6 $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak May 27 at 0:41
  • $\begingroup$ So using a vector image editor like Inkscape, one can extract the site's logo. $\endgroup$ – GNUSupporter 8964民主女神 地下教會 May 28 at 8:34
  • $\begingroup$ @MartinSleziak Thank a lot; I was able to extract the 6 red cubes from that .svg file $\endgroup$ – onurcanbektas May 28 at 14:50

    $\begingroup$ You can also find the logo in these posts (although not in svg format): Design Ideas for Mathematics Site and Do those red cubes aligned circulary next to MATHEMATICS have any mathematical significance? $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak May 28 at 15:43

  • $\begingroup$ @quid I remember discussion around copyright of the logo on MathOverflow. Was there some similar discussion on this meta? $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak May 28 at 22:32

    $\begingroup$ @MartinSleziak see for example meta.stackexchange.com/questions/22117/… This should apply to math.se too (MO is different). $\endgroup$ – quid May 28 at 22:34

    $\begingroup$ @MartinSleziak turns out there is actually an official site just about this stackoverflow.com/company/logos . Sorry for the double post. $\endgroup$ – quid May 28 at 22:35

It seems that svg-file with the logo is available here: https://cdn.sstatic.net/Sites/math/Img/sprites.svg?v=fa2277060fb6
I got the link after choosing "Inspect" and "Sources" in Google Chrome, while viewing the site.

It seems that svg format is not supported as a format which can be used in posts. So here is at least a screenshot showing the content of the svg file:

As mentioned in the comment, you should keep in mind copyright/trademark issues. See also: What are the rules on using the Stack Overflow logo?, SO page with logos and Guidelines for the Use of the Stack Exchange, Inc. Trademarks.

Since you have mentioned that you want to use this to link to your account, the fact that flair can be used for this purpose should be mentioned.

(Both these issues were raised in the comments by quid - I think they are important enough to be mentioned in an answer.)
