Another prefectural flag is the flag of Traffic Safety. The only information I can pull from the text is that it was adopted in Showa 37 (1962). The flag is a mixture of 7 green and white bars, with a yellow cross in the middle. It can be seen on the Prefectural website.

Fukuoka uses this symbol on white. The design was made in 1951 by Okabe Hirata and combines the characters "Yen" in Japanese and "F" in English. The three colors represented the three districts of the prefecture. (Source)
