10 semicircular arcs, forming a circle that looks like a flower (the arcs curve outward away from the center of the circle). The topmost arc is centered around the bilateral axis of symmetry of the flower shape. A red arrow runs counterclockwise; it starts at the point where the topmost arc intersects with its counterclockwise neighbor, then runs around the circle (going through the points where the arcs intersect each other), and ends where the topmost arc intersects with its clockwise neighbor.
