Where to find a fixation cross for a behavioral experiment?

OS (e.g. Win10):

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

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

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.

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: +
