Make it yourself icon theme : from Sardi Flat Colora to Sardi Flat Moon Tomato

In the Sardi Flat Orange folder you will find a script to change all orange colored icons to any colour you want. The standard new colour is a blue colour.

EDIT: Sardi Flat Orange has been renamed to Sardi Flat Colora to point out that this icon set can change its colours via a script.

We use inkscape to test what colour combinations we like and copy/paste the 5 codes into the script and run it.

We end up making a new icon theme with the name Sardi Flat Moon Tomato (name of the colours).

16 million colour choices
