The white flag with blue emblem used since 1955 was abolished. The new emblem was adopted on Nov 21st 2010 by Notice No387 and the new flag was adopted on Dec 6th 2010 by Notice No 405. The white flag has a blue, a green and an orange three color city emblem in the center. The city emblem is a stylized kanji 加 Ka of Kazo. The four curved lines symbolize the former one city and three towns and the center part does an image of bright and vivid citizen. The blue color stands for rich rivers, the green color for the fields and the orange color for a great cultural heritage of the city. The circle represents further development and prosperity of the city. The flag proportion is 2:3.
