History of Establishment
As momentum increased for the establishment of an ordinary commercial bank in Hokkaido due to the vigorous demand for funds caused by the sudden rise in new industries and rapid population increase in postwar Japan, a request for the establishment of “The Hokkaido Bank, Ltd.” was unanimously approved at a meeting of small and medium-sized enterprise operators from all across Hokkaido held on August 3 and 4, 1950 (Asahikawa) and an all-Hokkaido meeting of Chambers of Commerce and Industry held on August 9 and 10 a few days later (Asahikawa).
Subsequently, through the work of 400 promoters from all regions and classes in Hokkaido, a genuine “bank with deep roots in Hokkaido” was established at the inaugural meeting (Sapporo) on March 3, 1951 (registration of incorporation: March 5, 1951).
With a structure of a regular hexagon and straight lines modeled on a snow crystal, our logo expresses the security and quality of Hokkaido Bank, and the rich natural environment of Hokkaido is represented by the green base color. Additionally, the future potential for expansion, both of Hokkaido Bank and the regional society, is expressed by the radiating lines that extend from the center out to the edges.
