As replied on Telegram:

+ I like flat icons and your proposal definitely complies with the branding guideline. But what 
identifies design, for example, with black or dark grey/green? Just color is hard to understand- 
but admittedly easy to distinguish later. And please keep in mind that Telegram makes everything 
+ After loading the image I've seen the tiny connector lines. Beautiful!
+ But unfortunately you need a hires screen to perceive this unzoomed.
+ The country icons are super funny when compared against each other. Love Hebrew/Israel. And 
Brasil 😊

My name is Kristi and I'm a designer based in Tirana, Albania. I was introduced to the 
LibreOffice community before LibOCon Tirana 2018 where I had the opportunity to work for the 
co-creation of LibOCon Tirana 2018 visual ID. After the event I was searching for LibreOffice 
communities on Telegram app and found out that there are different LibreOffice icons used for 
these channels, or no icons at all at some cases. Here is an example on how LibreOffice Telegram 
channel look from my app:

As you can see, it is quite confusing navigating through these channels if you are part of many 
groups related to LibreOffice.

I thought that it would make more sense to have the same look & feel of these icons and create a 
more consistent look visually. After some research i found out that there are two different 
groups of icons:
a. based on the country and language of the community;
b. based on the theme of the Telegram group (main channel, design channel, localization,etc)

My proposal is to replace the current icons with flat icons. Flat design is standing for years as 
very usable for websites and iconsincluding the onesrelated to Telegram app. The list of the 
icons is based on the The Document Foundation Wiki 
The new icons' colors are from LibreOffice branding guidelines 
(, except the red one (#FF0B23).

Hopefully this will create more consistency for community members that are navigating Telegram 
groups related to LibreOffice :)

You can find the proposals here in two different folders for countries/languages and different
