The emblem is a stylised hiragana te and a crane (of the Maizuru Mountain in the centre of the city), flapping its wings towards the sky, and symbolises Tendo's great leaping development. (The kanji Ten of Tendo means heavens/sky.)
The flag's adoption came into force on 1 January 1990. The field colour is given according JIS Z8721: hue 2.5P, brightness 3, saturation 8.

The flag of the city of Tendo is already reported, but I found two versions of purple flags.

The city emblem was adopted on Apr 1st 1963 and the flag was adopted on Dec 13th 1989 by Notice No 67. The bluish purple flag has a white city emblem in the center. The city emblem is a stylized hiragana て Te of Tendo. It represents an exponential development of the city like a crane in Mt.Maizuru in the center of the city flying in the sky. The flag proportion is 2: 3. The diameter of the emblem is 3/5 the height of the flag. The law says the color of the flag field should be a bluish purple so it is Tomislavís 1st image.
