The city emblem and flag are desecribed in notice number 73, 11 April 1989. See the more direct URL (in Japanese). The emblem is made up of two stylised hiragana tsu , looking like two interlocking circles, the first light green (DIC 132) and the second light blue (DIC 179). It symbolises infinite development/growth and steady harmony. The height of the emblem is 5/6 of the hoist.
