Bootstrap Icons are designed to work with Bootstrap components, from form controls to navigation. Bootstrap Icons are SVGs, so they scale quickly and easily and can be styled with CSS. While they are built for Bootstrap, they will work in any project.

To combine icons, we are going to use the component <b-iconstack> and the stacked prop on individual icons to create complex icons. Let’s see the code example:

FirstComponent.js

<template>
  <div>
    <h1>Welcome to sortoutcode.com</h1>
    <b-row class="mt-5">
      <b-col>
        <b-iconstack font-scale="5">
          <b-icon stacked icon="circle-fill" variant="info"></b-icon>
          <b-icon
            stacked
            icon="alarm-fill"
            scale="0.5"
            variant="white"
          ></b-icon>
          <b-icon stacked icon="circle" variant="danger"></b-icon>
        </b-iconstack>
      </b-col>
      <b-col>
        <b-iconstack font-scale="5" variant="white">
          <b-icon stacked icon="square-fill" variant="dark"></b-icon>
          <b-icon
            stacked
            icon="arrow-down-left"
            scale="0.5"
            shift-v="3"
            shift-h="-3"
          ></b-icon>
          <b-icon
            stacked
            icon="arrow-down-left"
            scale="0.5"
            shift-v="3"
            shift-h="3"
            rotate="90"
          ></b-icon>
          <b-icon
            stacked
            icon="arrow-down-left"

            rotate="0"
          ></b-icon>
          <b-icon
            stacked
            icon="house-fill"
            scale="0.5"
