Description
Inscriptions/Signature

A combination of graphic shapes, including squares, circles, and curvilinear forms. A gold and black form with a square base and curved top are the primary focus. The bottom two-thirds of this shape are horizontally striped in black and gold with a vertical purple stripe down the center. This shape is then flanked on the left by a green and silver rectangular form and on the right by a purple and silver rectangular form. A smaller square shape is then overlaid on each of these rectangular forms. The silver and purple shape contains an image of a headlight of the same colors. On the green and silver form is a square of black with a green circle and accent green hexagons. The circle and hexagons are outlined in gold. At the bottom of the entire image are two curved, ribbon-like shapes that project outward in opposite directions. The left shape contains the colors: gold, green, black, and purple. The right shape contains the colors: silver, purple, and green.
