The city emblem was adopted on Oct 1st 2005 by Notice No 725 but there is no flag law. The white flag has a blue city emblem in the center. The city emblem is a stylized hiragana しも Shimo of Shimonoseki in a form of a blowfish. The five lines symbolize the merger of one city and four towns. It represents an image of the city which has an abandunt nature, a strait leading to the world and the citizenís unlimited capability to the future.
