    Hi Anand,

    I guess you put SVG image somewhere inside /App_Data/Sitefinity/WebsiteTemplates....

    There are some weird Sitefinity handlers or modules return wrong Content-Type for SVG images.

    You can easily fix that if you will add outbound rule in your web.config:


      <rule name="SVG" preCondition="SVG PC" patternSyntax="Wildcard" stopProcessing="true">
        <match serverVariable="RESPONSE_Content-Type" pattern="*" />
        <action type="Rewrite" value="image/svg+xml" />
        <preCondition name="SVG PC">
          <add input="{REQUEST_URI}" pattern=".svg$" />


    Or you can place your image in another folder outside of App_Data. In this case IIS should normally return Content type for your image
