Can I Change SVG Color in Webflow?

If you are working with SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) in Webflow, you might be wondering if it’s possible to change the color of your SVG elements. The answer is yes!

With a few simple steps, you can easily modify the color of your SVGs to match your website’s design. In this tutorial, we will explore different methods to achieve this.

Method 1: Using CSS

One way to change the color of your SVG in Webflow is by using CSS. To do this, you need to Target the specific SVG element and apply the desired color using the fill property. Here’s an example:

    .svg-color {
        fill: red;

<svg class="svg-color" ..>

In the code above, we have defined a CSS class called “.svg-color” and applied it to our SVG element. The fill property is set to “red”, but you can replace it with any valid color value such as hexadecimal codes or named colors.

Method 2: Using Webflow Interactions

Webflow Interactions offer a visual way to create dynamic effects on your website, including changing the color of SVGs. To use this method, follow these steps:

  1. Create a new interaction by selecting an element on your canvas and clicking on the “+” icon in the interactions panel.
  2. In the interactions panel, choose an event that will trigger the color change (e.g., hover or click).
  3. Add a new action by clicking on the “+” icon next to “Affect” and selecting “Background color”.
  4. Choose the desired Target element (your SVG) and set the new color.

By using Webflow Interactions, you can create more complex color change effects, such as transitions or animations. Experiment with different settings to achieve the desired result.

Method 3: Using an SVG Editor

If you prefer working outside of Webflow, you can use an external SVG editor to change the color of your SVG. There are many free tools available online that allow you to modify SVGs easily. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Export your SVG from Webflow or download it if you already have one.
  2. Open the SVG editor of your choice.
  3. Select the element you want to change the color of.
  4. In the editor’s properties panel, look for a fill or stroke property and modify it accordingly.
  5. Save your changes and import the modified SVG back into Webflow.

Using an SVG editor gives you more control over your design elements, allowing you to make precise changes to colors and other properties.


Changing the color of your SVGs in Webflow is a straightforward process. Whether you decide to use CSS, Webflow Interactions, or an external SVG editor, all methods offer flexibility in achieving your desired visual style. Experiment with different techniques and unleash your creativity to make your website truly unique.
