SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphic. It can be used to make graphics and animations like in HTML canvas. It is a type of vector graphic that may be scaled up or down. SVG is a web standard for vector-based graphics. It basically defines vector-based graphics in XML format. SVG graphics do NOT lose any quality if they are zoomed or resized.

HTML

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

<body>
  
    <!-- svg tag is used here -->
    <svg width="200" height="200">
        <circle cx="80" cy="80" r="50" 
            stroke="black"
            stroke-width="2" 
            fill="grey" />
    </svg>
