Each of the three lines represents one of the three Kiso rivers ( Kiso , Ibi and Nagara ). The bottom of the coat of arms has the same shape as a helmet of the Tokugawa clan from the 17th century.
Since the founding of the first football league in Japan, Gifu Prefecture has been represented by the works team of the prefecture-based company Seinō Transportation ( Japanese西 濃 運輸, Seinō Un'yu ), which was relegated from the Japan Football League at the end of the 1997 season and shortly thereafter was dissolved.
