The former flag of Germencik was white with the municipality's former emblem. "Belediyesi" means "Municipality".

The emblem features figs, an olive tree, cotton and the Germencik geothermal power plant.
The Efeler geothermal plant is being built by a subsidiary of Güriş Holding, a leading Turkish renewable energy company. The plant’s five units – three of them already operational – are situated near the western town of Germencik, in the Buyuk Menderes Graben, the area in Turkey with the greatest potential for geothermal energy.
When completed later this year, the plant will reach 170 MW capacity, making it one of the ten largest geothermal plants in the world.
It will also increase the amount of installed geothermal capacity in Turkey by about 30 per cent, a substantial contribution to reaching the country’s 2023 renewable energy targets.
Turkey is aiming to add 34 GW of hydropower, 20 GW of wind energy, 5 GW of solar energy, 1 GW of biomass and 1 GW of geothermal to its energy mix by 2023.
The geothermal potential in the country is estimated at around 4 GW, of which only 427 MW has been developed to date.
