A photograph of three separate tiles put together to make one long horizontal image. Stems and flowers radiate from center of each tile which is a small, red square cross. When these tiles are put together, we notice two halves of a flora de lis symbol along the edge of each tile. The colors blue, turquoise, orange and white are used in these tiles.
