The city promotes urban development with the slogan: Ashibetsu, the village where the stars fall (a motto that also appears in the city’s emblem - 星の降る里 あしべつ).
This is the reason for the series of caps with constellations on them.

The current lid symbolizes the constellation Gemini, a group named after the twins from Greek mythology Castor and Pollux, one mortal and one son of Zeus.
The two stars that appear on the lid are Castor and Pollux
