Google Earth icon sought


[link to this post]
 
I'm trying to find the source of the icon for a church, i.e. the small yellowish church symbol. I can get a church pinpointed and can associate a custom icon, but can't see how to get the standard church icon associated.

Anyone know?

Kneel and pray! Sadly other than that no ideas.

Mark the location with any symbol and OK it. Go back to the symbol and get the properties (right click), the EDIT PLACEMARK box will come up. Click on the symbol to the right of the NAME. As there is no church you need to click on ADD CUSTOM ICON. By co-incidence I guessed:

http://maps.google.com/mapfiles/kml/shapes/church.png

and found a church! Had there not been one you presumably just point to the location of a suitable PNG.

Thanks for that icon. I'd already found a church icon, though yours is much better, but was looking for the one that most churches seem to be place marked by. This is used in the "Layers / More / Place Categories / Places of Worship" for Churches. Just can't find that particular icon. Unless I'm somehow supposed to tell Google Earth that it is a church, though no idea how to do that.
