Tunikate is named for the spongey looking but quite remarkable creatures typical of the area. In creating signage, the people of Acadian, TimshElf, the Georges Banks, and nMassachusetts use something known as the Chitonic Arrow. The chiton arrow appears in segments, a reflection of the segmented mollusc common to the area. There is much lore locally about the chiton. It is tenacious, but also beautiful in a simple way, and its ability to hide within its segmented shell reflects the pragmetism of the people here.
