The character ô is used instead of the correct character (o with a horizontal line above) that in Japanese transliterations indicates long vowels.

The emblem is a combination of wine red colour stylized Katakana character of Ko of Kochi and Kanji character of To of Tosa old name of Kochi on wine red colour field. In the emblem circle stands for peace and cooperation and upright sword shape for improvement. Adopted 1953-04-15.

Brown flag with two white semicircles and a drop-like shape (reminding of
a scematic diagram of an electric switch!) 2:3~
Proportions of the flags are given from W. Smith 1980. Interestingly some of the flags there are marked as state flags while this one has no markings.I am not quite sure how to interpret the meaning of missing markings.
