Another prefectural flag is the flag of Traffic Safety. The only information I can pull from the text is that it was adopted in Showa 37 (1962). Th flag is a mixture of 7 green and white bars, with a yellow cross in the middle. It can be seen on the Prefectural website.

From the Okawa city website:

Municipal Flag

The design was decided in 1979 through a public vote. The background color is a brilliant light blue, which symbolizes water and a clear sky. The city symbol and city tree "paulownia" are arranged in white in the center of the flag. This symbolizes the vital and fresh city, Okawa.
