Description of the flag
White stylized three mountains on blue field because Yamagata means a shape
of mountain. These also represents stream of the Mogami river running through
Yamagata. Blue stands for desire for peace and ideal, white for snow and purity
of people. Adopted 1963-03-26.
Nozomi Kariyasu, 6 May 1998
Easy to describe as three mountain peaks in snow-white against the green of the
forests. But if you look closely, you will see each peak has a triangular
indentation which might be viewed as an opening>entrance>mouth.
"Yama' is Japanese for mountain.

The colour specification in the law is JIS Z-8721, which as far as I
know is indexed by Munsell notation. The fact that the three
attributes are described as hue, brightness and chroma would seem to
back that up, giving the colour as Munsell 2.5PB 2.8/8.73.
