Fractal Symbols: Board Game Library

Board Game Library Tags
As its name suggests, the symbols in this library are for board games. The symbols can be used for prototypes or even finished products as is, or be adapted to suit the product’s need.

NOTE: Fractal Symbols has a new home at!


I started making and collecting these symbols because I had difficulty finding usable vector symbols that I needed for my board game prototypes. Making and collecting the symbols became a whole separate project and eventually, I was making symbols for potential prototypes rather than existing ones.

Finally, my collection had grown enough to share with other board game designers (and everyone else), so that others may use what I have created, and, like me, can spend more time designing and making the games rather than the symbols.

The library is divided into sections, with symbols grouped based on use. For example, all card symbols go into the Card section, all symbols related to Combat are stored in the Combat section. Each section is made up of a single file that contains all the symbols. Each section is showcased below with its title, a sample of symbols, and a rough description of what’s in that section.

Technical information

All symbols are available in .svg and .png files (rendered as black on transparent background).
To use the SVG-files, you need a vector-based illustration program like Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape.

If you end up using it in a published work, I would love to hear about it as well!


Some symbols are taken from public domain sites and are usually modified. I have chosen to include them in the library to make them easier to find and use. Other symbols are based on existing ones and may be similar to them. If you see the work of your own or someone else inside this library and feel it has been used without proper permission or attribution, please contact me and I’ll look into solving that issue.

Requests, suggestions, questions, and commissions

Can’t find a symbol you need, or do you have any questions for me? Then feel free to contact me at I also welcome any suggestions on how to improve the library but know that your request/suggestion may not show up in the library for quite some time, if at all.

If you need specific symbols for your game and want me to make them for you, contact me and we’ll work out a deal regarding design, price, exclusivity, and other details.
