From the Tochigi city website:

The emblem is comprised of two crosses,a vertical cross and a diagonal cross. The vertical cross represents the Chinese character for ten or "toh". The diagonal cross is a symbol found on the roof of Shinmei Shrine and is called "chigi".

There are ten "chigi" on the shrine, thus resulting in the name of our city, "Tochigi".
