Description of the flag

Gold stylized Kanji character of Nii of Niigata and Katakana character of Gata of Niigata on red field. The emblem represents friendship and hope of people. Adopted 23 August 1963.
Nozomi Kariyasu, 6 May 1998

I have made an attempt to draw the flag of the Niigata prefecture. The colours I used are standard red and yellow (R and Y). According to Smith and Neubecker's Wappen und Flaggen aller Nationen (Munich 1980), the proportions are 18:25.
