The ground of the mainfield is dark blue, a large white and red diamond with a blue cross in the middle and two yellow conventional angular leaf-forms, with smaller diamonds on the sides fill the field. This is surrounded by a white broder with a design of an undulating stem, cross-like flowers and heart-shaped leaves. Light green and brown are used in small quantities. The sides are overcast with brown wool. Like 15.847 but with the colors differently arranged.
