Nozomi Kariyasu, 15 January 2006

The emblem consists of a large blue oval, portraying the abundant water of Lake Biwa (Biwako) above a smaller green oval depicting the green land south of the lake. Where the ovals are nearest each other, they protude to nearly touch each other. The emblem symoblises the abundant water and greenery surrounding the city and a city atmosphere overflowing with spontaneous kind smiles.
