Original file(SVG file, nominally 192 × 192 pixels, file size: 1 KB)


English: Star of life, blue version. Represents the Rod of Asclepius, with a snake around it, on a 6-branch star shaped as the cross of 3 thick 3:1 rectangles.
The logo is basically unicolor, most often a slate or medium blue, but this design uses a slightly lighter shade of blue for the outer outline of the cross, and the outlines of the rod and of the snake. The background is transparent (but the star includes a small inner plain white outline). This makes this image usable and visible on any background, including blue. The light shade of color for the outlines makes the form more visible at smaller resolutions, so that the image can easily be used as an icon.

This SVG file was manually created to specify alignments, to use only integers at the core 192x192 size, to get smooth curves on connection points (without any angle), to make a perfect logo centered in a exact square, to use a more precise geometry for the star and to use slate blue color with slightly lighter outlines on the cross, the rod and snake.

Finally, the SVG file is clean and contains no unnecessary XML elements or attributes, CSS styles or transforms that are usually added silently by common SVG editors (like Sodipodi or Inkscape) and that just pollute the final document, so it just needs the core SVG elements for the rendering. This is why its file size is so small.
中文: 生命之星,藍色版本。代表阿斯克勒庇俄斯竿,周圍有一條蛇,位於6分支星上,該星的形狀是3個3:1矩形矩形的十字架。

設計: 徽標基本上是單色的,通常是石板色或中等藍色,但是這種設計在十字架的外部輪廓,桿和蛇的輪廓上使用了略淡的藍色。背景是透明的(但星星包括一個小的內部純白色輪廓)。這使該圖像在任何背景(包括藍色)上都可用並可見。輪廓的淺色陰影使表單在較小的分辨率下更可見,因此可以輕鬆地將圖像用作圖標。 手動創建此SVG文件以指定對齊方式,以僅使用核心192x192尺寸的整數,以在連接點上獲得平滑曲線(無任何角度),以精確正方形為中心的完美徽標,以使用更精確的幾何形狀代表星星,並使用板岩藍色,在十字架,桿和蛇上的輪廓略淺。
