The beetle shape is based on the Tiger Beetle, Cicindela Campestris, which is a large and usually green beetle found in Ireland, throughout Europe and across Siberia to the Pacific Ocean.
It is know for being a ferocious predator, and extremely fast. The fastest species of tiger beetle can run at a speed of 9km/h which relative to its body length, would be the equilvalent of a human running
at 770km per hour!
This design is inspired by the Irish proverb,
'Aithníonn ciaróg, ciaróg eile' (One beetle recognises another)
