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 つ, 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.
