Adca told KUAM News, "So that what we depicted right in the middle of the mural the Official Seal of Dededo village and the other think is the skate park all the mascots for the schools and the park and the church."

The wall the mural is painted on was constructed specifically to showcase to artwork. The other side of the wall will be dedicated as Veterans Memorial.  Dededo is the 13th village to unveil a mural.
