City flag

The flag of the city of Soja is green with mark. The old one was purple with same mark. Unfortunately, I do not have enough good images of emblems for merger villages.

The city emblem was adopted on Mar 22nd 2005 but there is no flag law. The green flag has a white city emblem in the center. The city emblem is a stylized hiragana そ So of Soja. The upper part symbolizes Chigi , roof finials found at both edge of Japanese Shinto shrine roof and Katsuogi , roof ornamentation and the lower part does a conformity, a solidarity of the citizen, a peaceful city  administration and a steady development. The green color stands for a hope, a progress, a sincerity and a prosperity.
