Description
Literature

Two dark purple squares fill in the top left and bottom right corners. They are divided in their centers by a purple floral patterned X. The opposite corners are simple floral patterned squares. Four thin purple rectangles run from each side to the center to deliniate the larger patterns and meet in a small square in the middle.
