Symbol of the prefecture
The symbol of the prefecture is a schematic representation of the first (Japanese) letter of the word Hiroshima. Its roundness symbolizes the harmony and unity among the prefectural citizens. The overlapping roundness of these pictograms symbolizes the vigorous development of Hiroshima Prefecture. (Decided on July 16, 1968)
(This is, of course, the symbol on the flag)
