...and sharing is caring

Minimal approach: Place credit in CSS code commented out near background-image code.


    background-color: #0b7;
    background-image:url("data:image/svg+xml,%3Csvg xmlns='' width='120' height='120' viewBox='0 0 120 120'%3E%3Cpolygon fill='%23000' points='120%2C0 120%2C60 90%2C30 60%2C0 0%2C0 0%2C0 60%2C60 0%2C120 60%2C120 90%2C90 120%2C60 120%2C0'/%3E%3C/svg%3E");
