The flat solitary wave with the behavior of conjugate flow, generated by a submerged body moving in a two-layer fluid, is investigated. A criteria about the existence of weakly nonlinear weakly dispersive flat solitary wave is given. The condition of the stable system of conjugate flow is obtained. The solution of the flat solitary wave satisfying the criteria is numerically verified to be unique. Theoretical analysis is qualitatively consistent with the experimental results obtained by the authors.
