Nozomi Kariyasu, 10 March 2006

According to the city website, the emblem is a stylised kanji yama 大 (large, big) in the shape of wings, drawn with 2 circles, flapping to the heavens. This simultaneously has the meaning of harmony/peace (和, the "to" of Higashiyamato), symbolising development/growth and harmony/unity. Jonathan Dixon, 4 July 2006
