In the center is an “apple” (or bull's eye, English bull's eye), which is estimated to hit 50 points, surrounded by a green ring around it (25 points). The outer narrow ring means doubling the sector number, the inner narrow ring means tripling the sector number. Both the outer and inner narrow rings are traditionally painted in red and green.
