Answer

To Add SVGs in react native you can use react-native-svg

Install:

yarn add react-native-svg

Example:

import Svg, {
  Circle,
  Ellipse,
  G,
  Text,
  TSpan,
  TextPath,
  Path,
  Polygon,
  Polyline,
  Line,
  Rect,
  Use,
  Image,
  Symbol,
  Defs,
  LinearGradient,
  RadialGradient,
  Stop,
  ClipPath,
  Pattern,
  Mask,
} from 'react-native-svg';

/* Use this if you are using Expo
import * as Svg from 'react-native-svg';
const { Circle, Rect } = Svg;
*/

import React from 'react';
import { View, StyleSheet } from 'react-native';

export default class SvgExample extends React.Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <View
        style={[
          StyleSheet.absoluteFill,
          { alignItems: 'center', justifyContent: 'center' },
        ]}
      >
        <Svg height="50%" width="50%" viewBox="0 0 100 100">
          <Circle
            cx="50"
            cy="50"
            r="45"
            stroke="blue"
            strokeWidth="2.5"
            fill="green"
          />
          <Rect
            x="15"
            y="15"
            width="70"
            height="70"
            stroke="red"
            strokeWidth="2"
            fill="yellow"
          />
        </Svg>
      </View>
    );
  }
}

Or you want to import an svg to your app use: react-native-svg-transformer

Example:

import Logo from "./logo.svg";

<Logo width={120} height={40} />

But if you want an icon library you can use : react-native-vector-icons

Also here is the directory: React Native Vector Icons directory
