The town emblem and the flag were adopted on Nov 1st 2004 by Notice No 1. The blue flag has a white town emblem in the center. The town emblem is a stylized hiragana み Mi of Misato. It represents hopes, a surge and a friendship. The flag proportion is 2: 3.

Nozomi Kariyasu on 25 September 2014, mentioned there is a flag law regarding the town. However, the correction that I need to make is the law lists the flag as 7x10 (the spec sheet, very crudely scanned if I may add, shows a flag at 1400x2000 in size). However, I did manage to find [the] Design Manual of the Town and it confirms the information in the flag law with clearer drawings. The emblem is white on a blue background, defined as DIC 183. The emblem is not centered on the flag but placed higher up towards the top and further towards the fly end than the hoist. I attach my drawing of the flag with the revised specs.
