I would like to assign some simple icons to Gmail label shortcuts, like an airplane for travel. Is there a convenient way to do this? Icon selection seems to go through the Gallery app now.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

@gatoatigrado Are you trying to make icons within the GMail Android app itself? Or are you trying to make icons on your home screen that open the app to a particular label? Or something else? – Matthew Read May 15 '11 at 15:28
The second -- set a homescreen shortcut icon. – gatoatigrado Jun 6 '11 at 23:28

If you use ADW Launcher, you can create the label shortcut on your homescreen and then use icons from a themepack to customise the look of said shortcut.
