The emblem is the kanji ta 多 (many) of Tama-shi, stylised in the shapping of dove flapping wings and taking off (inside a circle). The dove, particularly the line towards the upper right, reassuringly symbolises unlimited motion into the future and peace.

For city of Tama I found two variants of flag: purple and blue.
