The flag proportion 2 : 3. The town emblem is a stylized kanji 本 MOTO in a circle form which represents the mind of the unity and the harmony. The three white lines stands for the old three municipalities and the town's main industry, agriculture-forestry, fisheries and business-industry.

The flag of the former town of Motoyoshi (now part of Kesennuma) is already reported, but I found darker shade of blue.
