The Flag

The flag features the current logo (source ), established in April 2003 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the company's establishment, over a white horizontal flag, as seen here. Previously, the company has had (at least) two other logos and it is more likely they were featured on company's flags as well:
- First logo (established in March, 1981)
- Second logo (established in August 1986)
- Third logo (Second logo with amended font) (established in October 1998)
Konami's current logo, "Konami Group Brand Logo", is designed under the theme of "Contemporary Quality", using a dynamic serif font that demonstrates substance and reassurance. Based on Konami Group's foundations of innovation and originality, the logo demonstrates class, confidence and vibrancy, all befitting traits of a corporation supporting High Quality Life. (It's color font is) KONAMI RED (, which) uses cardinal red, which is easy to familiarize with and expresses quality and class." Source
