Hi, Mirek
You have a hidden problem: "Use Vegur, LibreOffice's official font, if you
need to."
This means that Bulgaria, Belarus, Russia, Serbia, Ukraine and other
countries that use the Cyrillic alphabet, will be offended, because "Vegur"
does not include their national symbols.

Actually, the only letter we should use is capital A, perhaps capital B if
we need to. These symbols happen to belong in the Latin, Cyrillic, and
Greek alphabets.
We don't have to use Vegur per sé, but Vegur is ideal for deriving a
symbol, as it's in the public domain. Icons should probably use tweaked
versions of the font's A symbol to accentuate the associated action.

1. The letters, which have a slope of the line, have a poor appearance
the scale will be changes, if there is no transparency.
2. National community might want to use the familiar images in the
"\cmd\{lang}\..". Look at the picture.

When this was discussed, the main issue was to *avoid* the
necessity of localised icons; just using *A*,/A/,_A_
everywhere as universal symbols.
Then (Mirek) opted for lowercase *a*,/a/,_a_ which in my
opinion is prone to much more controversy.

Actually, we ended up choosing capital A.

In any case, the flat icon project has been shelved for now, until we find
someone skilled and experienced to lead the project. I feel like the
guidelines aren't strict enough yet to guarantee a cohesive set (e.g.
there's no definition of line widths, corner sharpness, ...) and I'm not
sure if focusing only on Android is the best thing to do if we'd like to
use the icons in desktop/online LibreOffice itself sometime down the line.
