The emblem has the kanji Kaminoyama (above, up) (mountain) deformed to show a crane, from tourist city Kaminoyama's Tsuruhagi hot springs. It also expresses the strength of a bud sprouting from a seed split in two. The field colour is given according to JIS Z8721, I think as hue 5PB brightness 2, saturation 12.
