The flag of the city of Iiyama is already reported, but I found lighter shade
of green background.
Tomislav Šipek, 08 May 2014
The city emblem was adopted on Aug 1st 1954 and the flag was adopted on Aug
1st 1974 by Notice No 55. The green flag has a white city emblem in the center.
The city emblem is a stylized hiragana いい Ii and kanji 山Yama. The circle
symbolizes a concord and a development. The white color stands for a pure-white
snow and the green color for a beauty of virid mountains and an abundant nature.
The flag proportion is 2:3.
