A high-quality blue and orange prayer rug with white and red accents. A large blue shape in the center sports 5 rows of text, a tank, and what looks to be a large red anti-aircraft gun coming out the top.
Minarets, hand grenades, armored personnel carriers, helicopters, and other objects fill in the negative space around the center.
The center composition is bordered by two thin red lines, which is then bordered by a procession of white and red tanks on a dark blue background.
