The flag of the city of Yawata is blue with mark.
Tomislav Šipek, 29 January 2014
The city emblem was adopted on Oct 1st 1964 but there is no flag law. The
light blue flag has a white city emblem in the center. The city emblem is a
stylized kanji 八 Ya of Yawata in a form of two pigeons representing a spirit of
a peace and a friendship. The surrounding bamboo circle symbolizes a grownig
young power and the ineradicability to overcome difficulties.
