The website describes* the icon as follows:
This icon, from iconographer Tony Rezk shows the 21 Coptic Martyrs in the orange jumpsuits they were wearing when they were Martyred.  The water behind them has turned red with their blood as 21 crowns descend from Heaven indicating their Martyrdom as Jesus Christ welcomes them into his glory. 
This icon comes with a certificate on the back which lists the names of each of the 21 Martyrs.  Also included with this icon is an additional copy of the certificate.  This can be placed next to the icon and is perfect for prayer.
