The city emblem was adopted on Oct 1st 2005 by Notice No1 but thre is no flag law. The white flag has its city three color emblem in the center.
The city emblem is stylized E of Echizen and the green line stands for nature, orange line for warmth and blue line for expansivity. As a whole it represents  a comfortable lifestye city, traditional culture city and culture interchanging hub city.
