Noboru: This design was originally created in 2020, incorporating auspicious elements that commemorated the start of the new Reiwa era in Japan. The overall design takes the form of the "hinomaru" or "circle of the sun," with the crane as a symbol of peace and well-being, and chrysanthemums as an imperial emblem.

While the world has changed drastically since then, these emblems seem more relevant than ever. The character "noboru" means "to rise," as embodied by the rising red sun, with the hope that we will emerge out of turbulent times to find collective peace, health, and prosperity.
