Please note that all Checkered Flag decals DO NOT have the white part of the decal in the image. The white will be the color of the surface you are applying the decal to. In the first color option you will be selecting the color to replace the black in the image.
If you need a background you may select one in the color of your choice for an additional charge. This will be a solid decal that you will apply first. The checkered part of the decal will stack on top for the desired checkerboard look.
