Yellow stylized Hiragana character of Toku of Tokushima on indigo blue field.
The emblem is shaped like a flying bird representing harmony, progress and
cooperation of people. The indigo blue was selected as Tokushima is popular for
indigo producing prefecture. Adopted 1966-03-16.

The prefecture emblem was adopted on Mar 18th 1966 by Notice No 166 but there
is no flag law. The blue flag has a yellow prefecture emblem in the center and
kanji name in white at the bottom part.
