The city emblem was adopted on Apr 1st 1951 and the flag was adopted on Apr 1st 1966. The green flag has a white city emblem in the center. The city emblem is a stylized kanji 日向 Hyuga. The flag proportion is 100: 141.

Thanks to Mr. Kariyasu, I corrected its flag.

I found a web page of mergering of the city Hyuga and town of Togo in Miyazaki Prefecture. But, I have doubts about the emblem of the town of Togo while it isn't the same as on this page.
Why is it different, does anyone know?
Tomislav Šipek, 04 December 2013

The same emblem (a yellow circular device resembling hiragana to) appears on flags in other photos and documents from the time of the merger:

As for the emblem (also circular, but in two pieces - stylised hiragana tou) in the merger committee's survey - I haven't found anything else about it. It doesn't seem to have been used at the time, at least on the flags. I've got no idea whether it is an older emblem, the official emblem, but not the symbol used on the official flag, or a mistake.

Here are images of Togo town flags (from 2006, the town is part of the city of Hyuga).
