The flag of the city of Kumano is white with mark.
Tomislav Šipek, 27 February 2014
The city emblem was adopted on Dec 16th 2005 by Notice No 116 and the flag
was adopted on Dec 20th 2005 by Notice No 118. The white flag has a blue, a
light blue and a green three color city emblem in the center. The city emblem is
a stylized katakana クマノ Kumano. The blue color stands for a powerful wave of
Kumano Sea, the light blue color for a fresh stream as a source for life and the
green color for Kumano trails and healing mountains which had captured people
from ancient times. It represents an image of the city making a leap for the
future. The flag proportion is 2:3.
