The notice concerning the emblem seems to say that it applies from 1 May 1972 (two months before the date on the notice).
The emblem features a stylised hiragana mo も forming two overlapping bold circles, signifying peace of the people, industry and nature, and portrays the reassuring/emboldened harmony of Mobara City.
The notice says that other than in the city flag and employee's emblems,
the emblem may be depicted on other items where necessary to represent
