I often design UIs in Google Docs (b/c it's really easy to share and let people comment).

I can't find a list of image (.png, etc.) versions of Font Awesome icons.

I broke down and made Font Awesome vector graphics in Google Draw:

Google Drive Template Link: "Font Awesome Vector Icons/Glyphs"


  1. Click on the link to open the template in preview mode.
  2. Click the Use Template button to open the template in Google Draw.
  3. [Optional] Save a copy of the file to your Drive:
    File > Make a copy   or   ALT+F C
  4. Select one or more vector icons from the template and copy them to your clipboard:
    Edit > Copy   or   CTRL+C
  5. In your Google Doc, open the New Drawing dialog:
    Insert > Drawing > New   or   ALT+I D N
  6. Paste the vector icon(s) into the New Drawing dialog and then click Save and Close

You can download them from flaticon.com as .png files.


There is an updated add-on for Google Slides, it's called Insert icons for Slides by Romain Vialard

see https://gsuite.google.com/marketplace/app/insert_icons_for_slides/96201000411


Here's a write up of how to use them in Google Slides, should apply to Google Docs as well. http://phdesign.com.au/general/adding-font-awesome-icons-to-google-slides/

Basically you need to find an SVG (or vector graphics version) of the icon, convert it to WMF (e.g. using CloudConvert) then you can open it in Google Drive and copy and paste it.


For Google Sheets it is not possible to add icons directly into the text, but you can add HTML entities and symbols. Just copy and paste from here: https://dev.w3.org/html5/html-author/charref
