Embed the website github svg logo in my website?

Hi,

I wanted to embed a github logo in my website to reference to a repository.
Therefore I have visited the site: https://github.com/logos .

Under the section Please don’t do these things is a sentence which says: Change the colors, dimensions or add your own text/images

So to be more specific: On the website I have mentioned above there is at the footer a github svg icon. Which does not have the same color with the content provided inside the downloadable content. Am I allowed to use this svg icon code within my website?

I am really confused about how I should use logos etc. I see lots of websites where they have an github svg logo and not total black or white. So I would appreciate any comments on that :slight_smile:
