The colour reserved for ozeki and yokozuna fringes is purple. This is the Nagatanien colour, the sponsor, the biggest kensho sponsor in sumo and Terunofuji is their man, their first yokozuna.

Will Endo their next yolcozana?

Hakuyozan has received a new kesho-mawashi from his hometown of Shirataka, Yamagata prefecture. Costing around 3 million yen, it features symbols of the town and prefecture - a white hawk (shiroi taka) and the official flower of the prefecture, a safflower. The flower was dyed with locally-produced dyes made from safflowers, which are widely grown in Yamagata.

It was unveiled at the town hall on August 26th and will be on display there until September 5th, when it will be sent to Hakuyozan for (hopefully) use in the Aki basho. Since he couldn't attend in person, his mother stepped in alongside the Mayor, Seishichi Sato.

Hakuyozan's mother was interviewed in detail and also talked about start of keiko of her son.

Terunofuji is sporting a new keshomawashi set this tournament (Kyushu 2021).  The apron worn by Terutsuyoshi features a castle (Himeji?) and that of Takarafuji an eagle(?).  Can anyone [#akinomaki ;-)] identify the kanji that appears on Terunofuji's apron?  Just curious.

The sponsor is another mystery.  "GOOD SPEED" is the American version of "Godspeed".  Seems more like a wish than the name of a sponsor.

Asked and answered!  That's what's great about this Forum.  It's like a living resource where people with shared interests help one another.  Many thanks #Kamitsuumi!

And the hidden kanji is: 気 ki meaning "energy" or "force".

Appreciate the photo, rhyen.  The only thing is, "Terunofuji and Co," cracked open another new set today (i.e., day 5)... (n.b., that's a hint). ;-)

MItakeumi gets a new one from his locals in Agematsu, from the Agematsu genki-kai (as a pun also: Is Agematsu genki(lively)?). It shows the town character Taro-kun, from the tale of Urashima Taro, catching a tai (the yusho fish) at the Nezame no toko gorge, the local tourist attraction. 

It looks like the fishing line snapped and the tai escapes (another failed yusho), but the designer explained it is not cut, it is the sun reflection on the fishing line: with the hope he gets the yusho fish for hatsu and gives a boost to the ozeki run (a tai is also used for ozeki and yokozuna promotion celebrations - double fish with a yusho).
