the identicon style on Parachains is not aligned with Polkadot, as you can see as below.

enter image description here

How can parachain team make the same style or override the default settings?

According to the Polkdaot.js/UI settings: https://github.com/paritytech/substrate-ui/blob/master/src/Identicon.jsx#L48, parachains should be able to override it to polkadot style.

But the code here: https://github.com/polkadot-js/common/blob/master/packages/networks/src/defaults/icons.ts seems does not work.

Polkadot.js App reads the value from two parts: ui-settings and from an IdentityNode list


ui-settings: the user can pick their preferred icon theme. This will apply to all networks.

And for IdentityNode list, you could do a pull request to add your node name and your preferred icon theme



I think you need to add the identity pallet to your parachain runtime.
