The emblem has the kanji Kaminoyama 上 (above, up) 山 (mountain)
deformed to show a crane, from tourist city Kaminoyama's Tsuruhagi hot
springs. It also expresses the strength of a bud sprouting from a seed
split in two. The field colour is given according to JIS Z8721, I think as
hue 5PB brightness 2, saturation 12.
