Creating an SVG hexagon with a drop shadow involves using the <polygon> element to define the hexagon shape and then applying the drop shadow effect using the filter property. To achieve this, you can use the SVG code below:

xml
<svg width="200" height="200" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" version="1.1"> <!-- Define the drop shadow filter --> <filter id="drop-shadow"> <feGaussianBlur in="SourceAlpha" stdDeviation="2" result="blur"/> <feOffset in="blur" dx="2" dy="2" result="offsetBlur"/> <feMerge> <feMergeNode in="offsetBlur"/> <feMergeNode in="SourceGraphic"/> </feMerge> </filter> <!-- Define the hexagon --> <polygon points="100,5 190,50 190,150 100,195 10,150 10,50" fill="#FFD700" filter="url(#drop-shadow)" /> </svg>

In the SVG code above:

  1. We define the drop-shadow filter using the <filter> element. This filter applies a drop shadow effect using a Gaussian blur (feGaussianBlur), an offset (feOffset), and merges the result with the original shape.

  2. The <polygon> element is used to create the hexagon shape. The points attribute defines the coordinates of the six vertices of the hexagon.

  3. The fill attribute sets the color of the hexagon, and we used the color #FFD700, which corresponds to gold.

  4. Finally, the filter attribute is set to url(#drop-shadow), which applies the previously defined drop-shadow filter to the hexagon shape, creating the drop shadow effect.

You can adjust the width, height, and other properties to customize the size and appearance of the hexagon and drop shadow as per your requirements. Simply copy and paste this code into an HTML file or an SVG editor to see the hexagon with the drop shadow effect.
