Description
Inscriptions/Signature

Two rounded shapes placed on top of two angular shapes. The angular shapes are taller than they are wider. They resemble legs. The "legs" have stripes of purple, red, and silver. The two rounded shapes seem to be connected to each other. The shape on the facing-left creates an "L"-like shape. The base color of this shape is purple, and it is printed over with silver. The shape on the facing-right is similar to a half-circle. Like its counterpart, the base color of this shape is purple, and it is printed over with silver. There is also a red stripe along the inner edge of the half-circle.
