The flag of the town of Tsuwano is white with mark.
Tomislav Šipek, 16 December 2013
The town emblem and the flag were adopted on Sep 25th 2005 by Ordinance No 1.
The white flag has a black town emblem in the center and red two horizontal
stripes ( wider and thinner) at the upper part. The town emblem is a stylized
kanji 石巴 Ishi Tomoe which is a form of yin-yang symbol and a steel square. Ｉt
looks like a traditional Japanese family crest. It represents a
reconciliation and the steel square symbolizes a justness and a rule. The flag
proportion is 2: 3. The height of the emblem is 3/5 of the height of the flag.
