An attractive sticker variation with confusing properties.

Opposite faces have the same two colours, but the diagonals run perpendicular to each other (assuming you can see through the cube, that is).
These conditions allow for two essentially different ways to sticker it. You either have one slice that leaves everything the same after 180° turn (and another slice changes 2 faces and the third changes all 4 faces), or you have the nicer more symmetrical arrangement where every 180° slice turn changes exactly 2 faces. Both of these patterns also exist in mirror image.

The images shown here steem from a sample made by Mark Longridge.
