Nozomi Kariyasu, 1 January 2006

The order says a tuft (fringe) should be attached, but not for a flag in general use. Nozomi has already mentioned that the field should be white and the emblem purple. The white of the field is a desire for advancement and development/growth and for a permanently/eternally spotlessly clean city. The purple of the emblem shows the colour of the city flower wisteria (in Japanese, the fuji of Fujieda). This shows a desire for noble dignity in the appearance of the city, together with the field's cleanness, seeking sublime dignity.
