City flag

The emblem was adopted in 1963 on occasion of tercentenary of the city, the flag was adopted on the same time. Ratio 2:3, vertical size of emblem 2/3 of the hoist. The emblem is stylization of the Japanese character 'to' () standing both for the city and the prefecture. The two "horns" are also representing the thriving towards better future. The dark red colour of the field is reference to cherry fruit revered in the city (and Japanese culture in general) and is considered traditional colour of the city (the busses are coloured in the same shade too).

The flag of the city of Tonami is already reported, but it's now old flag. The new one is white with mark. I also redrew old flag also.

The city emblem was adopted on Nov 1st 2004 by Notice No1 but there is no flag law. The white flag has a green, a blue and a dark yellow three color city emblem in the center. The city emblem symbolizes a tulip and Shogawa river. The green color stands for an abundant nature such as fields and mountains, the blue color for a rich fresh stream of Shogawa river and a brisk breeze and the dark yellow color for seasons  harvests from natural blessings, mature people, a productive city and a rewarding future.
