There is now a new page on the emblem at the Fussa website.

The emblem, consisting of two strokes forming a circle with a triangular gap at the top and a third line forming a jagged arrown pointing up into the circle from the bottom, is described as a stylised hiragana fu ふ, expressing the launch of the city's future prospects and peaceful harmony for the citizens. As part of the city's 20th anniversary in 1960, there was an public invitation for designs for the emblem, the chosen design being adopted on 1 October.
