The city emblem was adopted on Mar 20th 2006 by Notice No 1 but there is no flag law. The white flag has a red, a blue and a light blue three color city emblem in the center. The city emblem is a stylized A of Amami. The red circle symbolizes blessing sun. It represents an image of the citizen who lives together with an abundant nature.
