About the flag

From left to right: Chia (to praise), Yi (good deeds) and then city. I know this place well, my home town. A long time ago during the Ching dynasty there was a rebellion. The people in the area helped the dynasty to suppress the rebellion. So the Emperor "praised the good deeds folks here did" and changed the name to Chia-yi. It's original name is "Ju-lo." This is the county where the Tropic of Cancer passes.

All sources agree on the design we show with variation on the shade of (dark) blue and emblem details.
