The flag of Nilüfer, used either horizontally (photo, photo) or vertically (photo), is white with the municipality's emblem in the middle. "Belediyesi" means "Municipality".
The emblem of the municipality is canting, featuring a water lily, in Turkish, nilüfer. The Persian word niloufar also gave the Latin name of genius Nufar, and a generic name in some Latin languages (French: nénuphar / nénufar, Spanish: nenúfar, Catalan: "núfar").
The town of Nilüfer is named for the river that crosses it.
Nilüfer Hatun (c. 1283 - c. 1383), the wife of the 2nd Ottoman Sultan, Ohran, and the mother of the 3rd Ottoman Sultan, had a bridge built across the river, soon known as Bridge and River Nilüfer, respectively.
The bridge was made of cut sandstone and bricks. Previously it was formed of four lancet arches, but as the watercourse was filled, belatedly four small brick arches were added.

Flag of the Şahinkaya Educational Institutions - Image by Ivan Sache, 31 July 2019
When the founders Rasim Şahinkaya and Nebahat Şahinkaya started their teaching careers in 1968, the foundations of the Private Şahinkaya Educational Institutions (website) were laid. They continued the sense of education and teaching, which was strengthened by state services for 30 years, after their retirement. Şahinkaya family, their children Ali Serhan and Oğuzhan Şahinkaya continued on the same road; they first founded the private Şahinkaya Teaching Institutions, and then the Private Şahinkaya Schools in the 40th year of their teaching careers.
The flag of the Şahinkaya Educational Institutions (photo, photo, photo, photo) is purple with the institutions' emblem, in white.
