The Flag

The flag was adopted on Feb 1st 1966 by the prefecture by Notice No 9. The flag proportions are 2:3. The blue flag is charged with a white stylized  kanji Oita 大分 in the center. The round symbols represent peaceful development of the city.

I was able to find the law referenced by Nozomi Kariyasu on 12 October 2009 at (大分市旗を定める件, Ōita-shi hata o sadameru kudan, Defining the Flag of Oita City; Showa 22, Feb 1) and fixing the image to match the specifications listed (2x3 flag, 3:5 symbol to hoist ratio, centered on the flag). However, the blue color did not have any specifications attached to the shade.

The flag of former town of Saganoseki was green (or blue) with mark. The town is now, from 2005, part of the city of Oita.

Perhaps a bit more inclining towards blue, but this might be a good approximation for now, too.
