The Insignia of Omura City Displayed on Omura's Flag

 

The Omura flag insignia was decided in 1948.

Explanation of the design:
A double circle is made up of six “ラ” shapes. The number six represents the one town (Omura) and five original villages (Kayaze, Fukushige, Matsubara, Miura, and Suzuta) that merged together to create the entire municipality of Omura City in 1942.
The “大 ”shape in the center of the double circle is the first symbol of the town's name (大村市=Omura City) written in kanji. This symbol means big, large, or great and emphasizes growth, progress, and development of Omura.
In Japanese “大” can be read as “O,” the number 6 can be pronounced as “MU,” and the “ラ” found in the double circle is katakana for “RA.” The second kanji for Omura City is 村(mura); thus, 6 = mu and ラ = ra. Mura translates to village. When you add all together, they spell out the City's name: OMURA.
