The city emblem was adopted on Jul 1st 1954 by Notice No 1 but there is no flag law. The dark blue flag has a white city emblem in the center. The city emblem is a stylized kanji 大 O of Odate in a form of wings. The shield symbolizes a growing homeland. It represents an exponential development.
Odate city general affairs section says they use only a dark blue flag at the city hall.
