Artist: Tracey Prehay
A black and white repeat pattern inspired by the Jamaican flag is striking and symbolic. This pattern typically features alternating black and white horizontal stripes, mirroring the flag’s bold black and green diagonal cross, which divides the background into four triangles. The contrast between black and white reflects the nation’s diversity and the resilience of its people, while the dynamic geometry pays homage to Jamaica’s vibrant culture and stunning natural landscapes. Whether on clothing, decor, or accessories, this pattern celebrates Jamaica’s rich heritage and its iconic flag’s enduring significance.
