The Flag

The flag of the city of Rikuzentakata is maroon with mark.
Tomislav Šipek, 17 October 2014

The city emblem was adopted on Jun 1st 1955 but there is no flag law. The maroon flag has an orange city emblem in the center. The city emblem is a stylized kanji 高 Taka of rikuzenTakata in a form of a sumo wrestler performing a ring entrance ceremony. The center circle symbolize a reconciliation and a solidarity of the citizen, the umbonal parts at both side do the city which is developing outwards.
