The emblem is a combination of the hiragana higashi ひがし - I guess the hi is the shape as a whole, the ga the right half of the outer part, and the shi the inner ring. (Two towns/villages joining in peace?) - the circle. The emblem shows unity and both wings spreading together for future growth. The whole emblem has the form of the shape of Izu and a fish. The circle depicts a citrus fruit and the three fine lines and the small circle depict the hot springs with sightseeing area.

The town emblem and the flag were adopted on Aug 1st 1969 by Notice No 16. The blue flag has a white town emblem in the center. The town emblem is a stylized hiragana ひがし Higashi. The ring connects the former two villages with a solidarity and the spread wings symbolizes the town’s development. The circle stands for citrus production and three thin lines with small circle for a hot spring. As a whole, it represents the landscape of Higashi Izu and fishes. The flag proportion is 2:3.
