The flag of town of Arita is white with symbol. In 2006 the town of
Nishi-Arita is incorporated into Arita.
Tomislav Šipek, 24 May 2013
The town emblem was adopted on Mar 1st 2006 by Notice No 1
but there is no flag law.
The white flag has a blue, a green and a red three color town emblem in the center.
The town emblem is a stylized kanji 有 Ari of Arita in a form of a flying bird.
The blue color stands for an image of the town which is a flying bird in the world sky,
the green color for a co-existence with the beautiful and rich nature and the red color for a fire of a kiln, a passion and a cooperation of the town people.
As a whole, it represents the town in which the people, the nature and the culture
flap wings into the future.
