The flag and emblem were adopted on the same date (notice no. 64). The order came into force on 10 October 1948.

The emblem is a stylized katakana ka , forming triangles which represent development and growth. Also, portions of the emblem can be seen to represent the three katakana of the city's name: ka, nu and ma .
