Gujo was formed on 1 March 2004 by a merger of the seven towns and villages of Gujo district.

The emblem, a stylised G, is made up of a green crescent, a blue three sided figure and an orange circle. The blue and orange together look like an image of a person, which according to Notice 250, represents brightly healthy citizens. The large spreading green ring brings up abundant nature and harmonised history and culture, portraying Gujo facing a bright future.

Order 59 deals with the use of the emblem (permission must be obtained for the mayor, and modification and commercial or confusing use are not allowed) and the flag. The flag must not be flown so as to disgrace the flag, and should be flown according to convention.
