Description of the flag

Yellow fringed white emblem on blue field. The emblem is stylized Katakana characters of Chiba ( chi = チ ha = ハ ) which represents progress of Chiba. Blue stands for hope and progress, yellow for prefecture flower rape blossoms. Adopted 29 July 1963.
Nozomi Kariyasu, 6 May 1998

The construction sheet at is hard to read, but from what I guess, the ratio of the flag is 2:3 and the height of the emblem is 3/5th of the flag's hoist. The background is a sky blue color, edges are yellowish and center is white.
