<rect>

The <rect> element is a basic SVG shape that draws rectangles, defined by their position, width, and height. The rectangles may have their corners rounded.

Example

<svg viewBox="0 0 220 100" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
  <!-- Simple rectangle -->
  <rect width="100" height="100" />

  <!-- Rounded corner rectangle -->
  <rect x="120" width="100" height="100" rx="15" />
</svg>
