The emblem is described as the hiragana i い to と forming a
circle. To me it looks like it could be made of either character, rather
than both together. The circle signifies the citizen's
aspirations, harmony and unity, while the flapping wings at the top are a
symbol of rapid development/growth. The designer was a Satao Sato/Saio/Saito
(?) of Saga prefecture, Nishimatsuuragunnishiarita town,
The image seems to be missing the "break" at the bottom of the circle.

The flag of Itoman is already reported, but mark is not quite alright.
