Intro

The Japanese Federation of the Deaf was founded on May 25th, 1947, at the Ikaho Hot Springs resort in Gunma Prefecture. They have been a member of the World Federation of the Deaf since the 1960's. (Source)

The flags use a seahorse as the main element of the flag; this is the adopted logo of the JFD. Wikipedia gives a summary on why the seahorse was chosen as the symbol of deaf people in Japan. In Japanese lore, dragons are deaf animals and they would lose their ears and become sea horses. Also, this character looks like the number "3" and Japan honors March 3rd annually as the "Day of Hearing" (Mimi no Hi). According to the JFD, the designer of the logo is Shozo Ohara (大原省三) but I cannot discern the adoption date of the logo.

In Japan, a seahorse is symbol of deaf people from a story that a dragon dropped his ear mistakenly into sea . A seahorse is called tatsunootoshigo = a baby a dragon dropped into sea in Japan. It looks a baby dragon and a ear.

The Flag

For the flag, there are two flags I was able to discover. The main flag of the JFD is their logo on a wine-red background (think Akita or Kochi prefectural flags, for example). The flag can be seen here. There is also a version from a 2011 meeting regarding the earthquake and tsunami that has the name of the organization in white, vertical, near the hoist.

There is also a youth division and they have a dark blue flag with their logo above a white text that says "General Foundation Japanese Federation of the Deaf Youth Division". (Source)

There is also a version from a 2011 meeting regarding the earthquake and tsunami that the name is present, but the text was rearranged and the blue is a darker shade.
