Where to find a fixation cross for a behavioral experiment?

OS (e.g. Win10):
MacOS

PsychoPy version (e.g. 1.84.x):
2021.1.4

Standard Standalone? (y/n) If not then what?:
Yes

What are you trying to achieve?:
I am trying to add a fixation cross to my experiment. However, I am not sure if I am able to make one for myself (Lucid Chart/ PowerPoint?) or use one from the internet that is freely available. I don’t know what the convention is in behavioral experiments.

What did you try to make it work?:
I have scoured the internet to use an image for my experiment that is free (i.e. Creative Commons) with no copyright. I was unsuccessful.

What specifically went wrong when you tried that?:
I am am wondering if I am able to design a cross on PsychoPy in the builder view because it seems like an easy thing to do. Alternatively, I could also design this on Lucid Chart or PowerPoint. I don’t know what the conventional choice is for software use. Any recommendation would be highly appreciated.

Include pasted full error message if possible. “That didn’t work” is not enough information.
N/A

The Polygon component has an option “cross” for its shape which works quite well as a fixation cross

You can also use a text component with a “plus” sign as text: +
