The Faba-mono theme is missing some action icons, you can find them in [your theme-drecory]/actions.

In your case the theme is missing edit-flag.svg, mail-move.svg, tag-new.svg and mail-archive.svg. The correct icon-size should be 24px.

If you want to add the elementary-icons into Faba, you could let Faba inherit the elementary-theme instead of copying them by hand.
Just add 'elementary' to the line Inherits=[...] in the index.theme of Faba.

    I got a also a comment under HERE saying to just set faba-mono to inherit from elementary. But what that does is that it just replaces almost completely Faba-mono with elementary icons, especially the file manager (after that only the dock uses faba-mono). As you said, not faba-mono, but faba has to inherit elementary
