Xamarin Forms ToolBarItem icon tint color on Android

How can I change ToolBarItem icon tint colour on Android? On iOS it's white, but shows black on Android.
For example in below code:

<ToolbarItem IconImageSource="deleteitem.png"/>
<ToolbarItem IconImageSource="menu_vertical_black.png" />

    Welcome to our Microsoft Q&A platform!

    Do you want to achieve the white three dots at the end of toolbar like following screenshot?


    You just add the Order="Secondary" for your <ToolbarItem Order="Secondary"/>

    If you do not want to add Order="Secondary", you add a white three dots image directly.

    I upload my white white three dots icon here .

    ↓↓↓↓↓↓(right click-save image here)↓↓↓↓↓

    Thank you Leon! Order="Secondary" did the trick!

    But in general, if I want to add different icon to toolbar, I need to make it's colour white in image file, there is no way to tint it like you can do with Xamarin toolkit and Image or ImageButton?
