<<"The <name of icon> page" is what I'd call it. If that
didn't work and there's one single word that effectively
identifies the page, I'd use that in place of <name of
icon>. For example, if there's a magnifying glass as an icon
(no words), I'd say "the Search page".>>
If you do this, then I would include a visual of that icon along with the
text, just so there's no confusion.
