Nanao city adopted its emblem and flag on 1 October 2004 by
Notice No 28 (link in Japanese).
Flag proportion: 2:3
colour of field: white
colour of emblem: deep blue and blue
diameter of emblem: 3/5 flag height
The emblem is a stylized N of Nanao which represents wave of Nanao Bay and steam from Nanao hot springs
Nozomi Kariyasu, 1 January 2006
The emblem is made up of a dark blue C-shape, ending in a wave crest and
inside that, a lighter blue figure consisting of a circle and another
stroke. The notice says that it uses a stylised initial N (I don't see
it!), representing the beautiful waves on Nanao bay bringing many
blessings, and steam from the hot springs. It also displays the citizens
in lively motion and pointing towards the future and the world. The
colours are given as DIC version 2 C-268 (peacock indigo "concheran") and
DIC version 2 -2176.
