City Flag

The flag of the city of Takasago is blue with mark.

Well, not to link to an entire blog page, I'd say is our best shot. I don't see the details you saw, though. Also, in these photographs the flag is a bright blue, nothing like the somewhat dull, darker blue you picked. Of course, shades are hard to make out in artificial light on photographs. Are there any daylight pictures that show us colour and detail?
Takasago? Wasn't that where a lorry driver derailed an entire train by coming to a halt on a crossing?

From this perspective it turns out that my interpretation of the flag and maybe too bright. What do you think?

I now take it you used  as the source for the mon, like for several of the other flags.
Apparently we can't determine the shade of blue from the photographs. You'd best use standard blue then.

The city emblem was adopted on Dec 14th 1954 by Notice No 19 but there is no flag law. The blue flag has a white city emblem in the center. The city emblem is a stylized kanji 高 Taka of Takasago. The circle symbolizes a peace and the center part does a growing city's impellent force.
