O elemento <a> do SVG cria um hiperlink para outras páginas da web, arquivos, locais na mesma página, endereços de email ou qualquer outra URL. É muito semelhante ao elemento <a> do HTML.

O elemento <a> do SVG é um contêiner, o que significa que você pode criar um link em torno do texto (como em HTML), mas também em torno de qualquer elemento.

<svg viewBox="0 0 100 100" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
  <!-- A link around a shape -->
  <a href="/docs/Web/SVG/Element/circle">
    <circle cx="50" cy="40" r="35"/>

  <!-- A link around a text -->
  <a href="/docs/Web/SVG/Element/text">
    <text x="50" y="90" text-anchor="middle">
/* As SVG does not provide a default visual style for links,
   it's considered best practice to add some */

@namespace svg url(http://www.w3.org/2000/svg);
/* Necessary to select only SVG <a> elements, and not also HTML’s.
   See warning below */

svg|a:link, svg|a:visited {
  cursor: pointer;

svg|a text,
text svg|a {
  fill: blue; /* Even for text, SVG uses fill over color */
  text-decoration: underline;

svg|a:hover, svg|a:active {
  outline: dotted 1px blue;

Como esse elemento compartilha seu nome de tag com o elemento <a> do HTML, selecionar a com CSS ou querySelector, pode ser aplicar ao tipo errado de elemento. Experimente usar a regra @namespace (en-US) para distinguir os dois.
