The square weaving has white fringe on two ends. The field is tan with a cluster of dark blue, red, and white bands clustered 1/4 of the distance from the end. The dark blue bands on the edge of the cluster are broken, giving them a "toothed" look. The center design, a serrated diamond, is in red, white, and dark blue.
