This mark was created by taking the first syllable of "Kumamoto" ("ku" in Japanese letter) and combining it with the geographical features of Kyushu. The white circle [??? - Jo.] in the center symbolizes Kumamoto prefecture, which is located in the center of Kyushu.

Proportions of the flags are given from W. Smith 1980. Interestingly this flag is marked as state flag while others have no markings.
