White stylized Katakana character of Ku (ク) of Kumamoto on wine red
colour field. The emblem expresses a map of Kyushu island in white a part of
which is Kumamoto. Adopted 23 July 1966.
Nozomi Kariyasu, 6 May 1998
This mark was created by taking the first syllable of "Kumamoto"
("ku" in Japanese letter) and combining it with the geographical
features of Kyushu. The white circle [??? - Jo.] in the center symbolizes
Kumamoto prefecture, which is located in the center of Kyushu.
