The flag of the City of Arakawa is reported, but I found only green one, not purple. Does anybody know more about it?

Tomislav discovered the fact.
The image of the purple flag was drawn with wrong information. I got a confirmation from Arakawa Ward government today who have used green flag with a white emblem from the beginning. The image of purple flag should be replaced by Tomislav new image of a green flag.
