The flag of Niğde (photo) is white with the municipality's emblem. "Belediyesi" means "Municipality". The motto means something like "The town of living civilizations".
The emblem of the municipality features the I-shaped town's clock tower. Located inside the castle, the Ottoman clock tower is one of a number erected in 1902 to celebrate the 25th year of Sultan Abdülhamid II's reign.
