Black and white image of three large flowers at center with many intertwining leaves. Behind flowers there is a body of water filled with small boats and larger ships filled with people. At BR there are trees and a group of houses built out to a ledge. There is billowing smoke coming from a basket that hangs from a tower. At LL there is a castle structure set on the seaside.
