does not say anything about the symbolism of the emblem, which is located
elsewhere on the website. This explains the
katakana forming the circle as expressing harmonious unity and the kanji
in the centre (forming a diamond shape with curved sides) as simply symbolising the city's name. (links in Japanese)
