The site actually says that that the red emblem is situated on the white field as in the national flag (of that time). The emblem was adopted 11 May 1912, and has the stylised kanji kawa (river) inside a circle made up of a stylised katakana ko in the top half (katakana go has ko as its basic character) and e in the bottom.
