On a blue field a yellow ring and within it the yellow Arabic
letters S and C. As armorial emblem a scarab [the beetle used as
symbol in ancient Egypt] on whose back are these elements
Jaume Ollé & Santiago Dotor, 28 September 1999
Arabic is written the other way around so the letters are
Ka (C) and Sin (S). Those are written in as initials
and therefore are not connected as it would be in regular writing of
I guess they were hand written on the image because of missing Arabic
fonts, since it is expected to be more calligraphic written.
The two little stripes above the right letter should be two dots.
