 <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
 <circle r="50"/>

Shows a square of a circle.

The file needs to be saved with a *.svg extension. It may be opened by any we browser or opened with an SVG capable software such as LibreOffice Draw.

Set the coordinates of the center with cx and cy

 <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
 <circle cx="50" cy="50" r="50"/>

The full circle is visible.

Use another fill color

The default fill color is black. To change it use the fill attribute.
 <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
 <circle cx="50" cy="50" r="50" fill="red"/>

No fill color

If you do not want the circle to be filled use the none value for the fill attribute. A stroke color value then needs to be supplied.
 <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
 <circle cx="50" cy="50" r="50" fill="none" stroke="red"/>
