Chofu City says they use a purple flag but a bluish purple (not blue) like Akishima variant is acceptable. Normally when they purchase a new flag they hold a tender and choose the best flag manufacturere time to time. As a result they can not purchase from a single maker. So there will be variatio of the flag color. Particularly the purple color is very delicate and has a wide range acceptable to Japanese people.
