NOTE: Why I chose the colors I chose. I wanted this square to represent the forests of Maine. If you have ever visited the Mountains of Maine, you will know what I am talking about! The forests in Maine are lush and beautiful and you get a great sense of peace when you hike through them! So for this square, I used the colors that to me represent the colors I see in the forests of Maine. The center of the square represents the forest floor, the brown area represents the trunks of the trees and the dark green area is the canopy looking up from the forest floor and the camouflage outer edge is the color of the trees looking down at the forest from above.
