The site uses Wikifont icons created by Mun May Tee-Galloway.
The iconset has not been updated, but I suggest we continue developing it as an open source project. The font has been forked in https://github.com/Wikidocumentaries/WikiFont.

Tag icon is often needed. It is used most prominently in the metadata editor.
