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).
