Tainan city flag already reported, but it seems this city changed its symbols at least twice during past months.

Three slightly different designs are found on the web, all based on the city logo. This shows a five-petal flower outline with deep indentations and sepals between each, all red, and on it a white very stylized letter "南" ("nán") on (or in) some kind of blue bowl outlined in white both in a red contour area, all this on a blue background area also shaped as a five-petal flower.

At Globalflag, a dark blue flag with a slightly different representation of the logo: thicker bowl outline, letter and bowl directly on the flower and queer gaps in the flower shape showing through the letter.

An identical design is shown but with light pruple instead of blue at Edward-Lee.com (this presenting slightly different designs on the flag and as the logo) and (perhaps as its source) at vexilla-mundi.
