Battenburg Sudoku (Fun With Sudoku #187)

Battenburg Sudoku is very interesting Even the Odd Sudoku variation. In this variation Odd and Even digits form the checkered board pattern and wherever this pattern occurs the Battenburg marking is given. This is also a Converse Rule Sudoku puzzle where all the markings are given. It means that where Battenburg markings are not given there Odd Even checkered board pattern cannot come. There is one Sudoku template I have prepared which will automatically mark these Battenburg Sudoku patterns when Sudoku numbers are entered in the grid. I created a few Sudoku puzzles to test the template. This is my second Battenburg Sudoku which is generated using that template. I have created a few puzzles to test the correctness of the Battenburg Sudoku pattern markings and also to test the color used for the markings so that when Sudoku is printed in black and white these marking are quite clear. 
I learned many things while I created these Sudoku puzzles. One of the notable learning is not to give any hint digit on the marking cell as it will immediately reveal the even/odd pattern for the 2x2 cells and the fun of solving these puzzles will go. So I will try to create the next few puzzles where I can avoid giving the numbers of the pattern cells. Anyway, this is an easy Battenburg Sudoku puzzle that can be used by a person who is new to Battenburg Sudoku rules to get to know more about this Sudoku type :).
I am posting this Battenburg Sudoku in the Fun With Sudoku Series as the 187th puzzle in this series. Can you solve this Sudoku puzzle?
