The shape of noble phoenix in blue represents the city Nagaoka which is striving to further develop as a regional core city with its own characters.

Nozomi Kariyasu, 18 January 2006


As Nozomi says, the shape of the indomitable phoenix represents the city developing without limit as a regional centre with charm/character. To me, it also looks like a stylised kanji naga (long, head/chief).
The ceremonial flag is 90cm x 120cm. The emblem's colour is light blue. The simplified flag can be two sizes: 90x120cm or 180x240cm.
