Not a solution but this might give you a clue about what to search for:

So it seems to be defined by the gtk theme, and the button image must be somewhere in the specific theme folder.

Change your theme, and you change the recurring objects on your screen, such as close buttons. UbuntuThemes provides, free, a vast number of themes, and you can deconstruct them to see which elements come from where for custom themes, and more theme change information is available on this board at at Ubuntu directly.

To summarize the steps:

  • Make a folder ~/.themes folder (ignore if you already have one - check with cd ~ & ls -al from a terminal window.
  • Download your theme of choice; double-click on it in your file
    manager to have the archive manager open.
  • Extract the contents into a folder underneath ~/.themes
  • Get the Ubuntu tweak tool: Open the .deb you downloaded, then
    install using the Software Center.
  • Launch the Ubuntu tweak tool - go to "Tweaks" and pick your theme.
