The city emblem was adopted on Dec 1st 2007 by Notice No 1 but there is no flag law. The white flag has a blue, a green and an orange three color city emblem in the center. The city emblem is stylized hiragana み Mi and kanji 九 Kyu of MinamiKyushu. The blue color stands for the fresh streams, the sea of abandunce, the green color for a rich nature, the orange color for a fertile earth and a vigor. The curved lines symbolize an imaginative power, a vigor and the town of a pure relaxation. As a whole, it represents the town in a harmony with nauture.

I am pretty sure that is it white - as a matter of fact, some of sources sent along with the message about that flag also seem to show a white flag.

This is the correct image (with white flag).
