A pattern of alternating squares of two colors.

In Japan, it has existed as a woven pattern since ancient times, and was called "stone pavement" or "arare".

It became popular after Edo period Kabuki actor Ichimatsu Sanogawa I wore a hakama with alternating white and dark blue squares at the Nakamura-za Theater in Edo. Ichimatsu continued to use this pattern, and ukiyo-e artists Masanobu Okumura, Kiyoshige Torii, and Toyonobu Ishikawa painted it, and it became popular as a kimono pattern. It was called cobblestone pavement according to an ancient custom, but later came to be called ``checkered pattern'' or ``checkered lattice''.

On the other hand, there is also the image of a checkered flag pattern. The design consists of a white and black checkered pattern. Usually a check pattern of alternating squares, a flag design used in races and sporting events.

On the other hand, it has also been featured in the iconic designs of famous street brands, and is a design often seen at skate parks and on the streets.

Although visually similar, they have different origins and meanings.
