Just copy the SVG code from CSS, and paste in the index.html below the h1 line. <h1>SVG Example</h1> <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" viewBox="0 0 360 360" enable-background="new 0 0 360 360"> <path fill="#8361B4" d="M0 0h360v360h-360z"/> <circle fill="#FDE135" stroke="#fff" stroke-width="8" stroke-miterlimit="10" cx="180" cy="180" r="157"/> <circle fill="#CAA61F" stroke="#fff" stroke-width="8" stroke-miterlimit="10" cx="180" cy="180" r="108.3"/> <path d="M89.4 276.7c-26-24.2-42.2-58.8-42.2-97.1 0-22.6 5.6-43.8 15.5-62.4m234.7.1c9.9 18.6 15.4 39.7 15.4 62.2 0 38.3-16.2 72.8-42.1 97" stroke="#CAA61F" stroke-width="8" stroke-linecap="round" stroke-miterlimit="10" fill="none"/> <path fill="#FDE135" stroke="#fff" stroke-width="4" stroke-linecap="round" stroke-linejoin="round" stroke-miterlimit="10" d="M180 107.8l16.9 52.1h54.8l-44.3 32.2 16.9 52.1-44.3-32.2-44.3 32.2 16.9-52.1-44.3-32.2h54.8z"/> <circle fill="#CAA61F" stroke="#fff" stroke-width="4" stroke-linecap="round" stroke-linejoin="round" stroke-miterlimit="10" cx="180" cy="107.8" r="4.4"/> <circle fill="#CAA61F" stroke="#fff" stroke-width="4" stroke-linecap="round" stroke-linejoin="round" stroke-miterlimit="10" cx="223.7" cy="244.2" r="4.4"/> <circle fill="#CAA61F" stroke="#fff" stroke-width="4" stroke-linecap="round" stroke-linejoin="round" stroke-miterlimit="10" cx="135.5" cy="244.2" r="4.4"/> <circle fill="#CAA61F" stroke="#fff" stroke-width="4" stroke-linecap="round" stroke-linejoin="round" stroke-miterlimit="10" cx="108.3" cy="160.4" r="4.4"/> <circle fill="#CAA61F" stroke="#fff" stroke-width="4" stroke-linecap="round" stroke-linejoin="round" stroke-miterlimit="10" cx="251.7" cy="160.4" r="4.4"/> <circle fill="#CAA61F" stroke="#fff" stroke-width="4" stroke-linecap="round" stroke-linejoin="round" stroke-miterlimit="10" cx="197.4" cy="159.4" r="4.4"/> <circle fill="#CAA61F" stroke="#fff" stroke-width="4" stroke-linecap="round" stroke-linejoin="round" stroke-miterlimit="10" cx="163" cy="159.4" r="4.4"/> <circle fill="#CAA61F" stroke="#fff" stroke-width="4" stroke-linecap="round" stroke-linejoin="round" stroke-miterlimit="10" cx="152" cy="192.5" r="4.4"/> <circle fill="#CAA61F" stroke="#fff" stroke-width="4" stroke-linecap="round" stroke-linejoin="round" stroke-miterlimit="10" cx="208" cy="192.5" r="4.4"/> <circle fill="#CAA61F" stroke="#fff" stroke-width="4" stroke-linecap="round" stroke-linejoin="round" stroke-miterlimit="10" cx="180" cy="213.2" r="4.4"/> </svg>

copy and past the SVG code in the index.html below the line :"<!-- Add your code below this line -->" It is as simple as that.

Hope this helps
