As described on the Green Map Icons page, this beloved symbol system is now open for new uses, under the Creative Commons 4.0 license. Thank you! We hope you will return and tell us about your map and create a Story about your project, as described here.
In order to make Green Map making tools, including the Icons, more accessible, Green Map System has created a compressed tool set (.zip). Within the set is a ‘getting started’ folder with an introductory page, a glossary, a guide, a Mapmakers archive and a Mapmakers Checklist. There is a logo folder, a folder with the Green Map Icons in various formats and fonts, and a “more” folder.

In Spring 2020, we created Recovery Icons in response to the Pandemic - use them on our mapping platform, your signs, art, apps, etc.
We have also matched the Green Map Icons to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals - check it out here!
