Abiko city Chiba adopted its emblem on 1 August 1955
A stylized katakana A ア.
No flag legislation but they use flag above in practice.
Flag proportion: 2:3; colour of field: light green; colour of emblem: white; diameter of emblem: 3/5 flag height.Source: href="http://www.city.abiko.chiba.jp/index.cfm/15,457,65,html">Abiko website (in Japanese)
The emblem is a stylised katakana a ア forming a circle broken at
the bottom, with a second stroke starting as a circle inside the larger
one and curling out the bottom. The upper part (the circle?) represents
Teganuma (Lake Tega) and the lower part future dashing growth.
