White coat of arms on orient blue field.
Stylized ornamental top of railing of Nihonbashi bridge and Kyobashi bridge
located in Chuo-ku.
From the past time the bridges are said to be birth place of culture and
economy and also a symbol of communication and transportation.
The small disc in the center indicates Chuo-ku is located in the center of
Tokyo as well as that of Japan.
Coat of arms adopted 31 July 1948.
