Css – img src SVG changing the styles with CSS

cssimagesvg

html

<img src="logo.svg" alt="Logo" class="logo-img">

css

.logo-img path {
  fill: #000;
}

The above svg loads and is natively fill: #fff but when I use the above css to try change it to black it doesn't change, this is my first time playing with SVG and I am not sure why it's not working.

Best Solution

You could set your SVG as a mask. That way setting a background-color would act as your fill color.

HTML

<div class="logo"></div>

CSS

.logo {
  background-color: red;
  -webkit-mask: url(logo.svg) no-repeat center;
  mask: url(logo.svg) no-repeat center;
}
