The Flag

Taiwa town adopted its emblem and flag: August 1 1975 by Regulation No 26 (page in Japanese).
flag proportion: 35:50 (7:10)
colour of field: dark blue (ai-iro)
colour of emblem: white; height of emblem: 23/35 flag height; width of emblem: 24/50 flag width; a stylized T for Taiwa

The emblem may be used extensively on town certificates, souvenirs, publications, etc., but groups other than municipal bodies must not use it without approval from the mayor. It cannot be used by commerical organisations or for porfit-making purposes. The flag must be flown at municipal bodies' conferences, ceremonies, etc and at town sports meetings, etc. Apart from this, the flag should be flown as much as possible on national holidays, occasions when the national flag is flown, any sort of town memorial days, etc. Hoisting of the flag other than by non-municipal bodies is under the same restrictions as use of the emblem.
The dimensions of the flag are first given as 35cm x 50cm, but the flag may be enlarged, keeping the ratio 7:10. The emblem is positioned slightly lower than the centre - the top of the emblem is 6.5 cm from the top of the flag and the bottom is 5.5 from the bottom.
