Free Language RSS Feed Icons


I’ve already posted these icons on CSSGlance and I’m glad to make them here available too. If you provide your audience with news feeds in different languages, this set of feed icons is something you definitely can’t miss! You can use these icons on your websites to differentiate your multilingual RSS feeds.

What is RSS?

The number of sites offering RSS feeds, a format to regularly deliver up-to-date web content, is growing rapidly. Many news-related sites, weblogs and other online publishers syndicate their content as an RSS Feed to whoever is interested in it. As soon as you subscribe to a RSS feed you’ll get fresh updates in real time.

For more info about RSS feeds you can take a peek at the What is RSS? website.

Why these icons?

Recently, I searched online for free RSS icons that could be used to identify content delivered in different languages. What did surprise me was that I couldn’t find any icons like that. I thought it could be useful to have a set of language RSS icons to be used on those sites that syndicate their content in different languages, so I decided to design my own set of icons and make it available to anyone who wants it.

What about format?

I designed 5 icons for the following languages: English, German, French, Italian and Spanish. Icons come in four sizes: 75×75 px, 50×50 px, 40×40 px and 25×25 px. All of them are in PNG format with transparent background, so you’ll be able to use them on every background you need.

In the zip file you’ll also find the Illustrator source file for each format, so you’ll be able to change colors, add new flags, and even resize the icons to better suit your needs, without lose in quality.

Is that free?

Language RSS Feed Icon Set is completely free for both personal and commercial projects in any way you like under the Creative Commons 3.0 License. I only ask you to respectfully link back to You cannot offer them for download on your website, but you can write about them and link back to this post.
