The flag of the city of Shirakawa is white with mark.
Tomislav Šipek, 08 September 2014
The city emblem was adopted on Nov 7th 2005 by Notice No 1
but there is no flag law.
The white flag has a red, a blue and a light blue three color city emblem in the center.
The city emblem is a stylized kanji 白 Shira of shirakawa.
The center oblong stands for a vigor of the bright citizen,
the blue outer oblong for a rich ground and a fresh water,
the light blue color for a fresh sky, the upper part for the historic culture.
The upward design symbolizes a harmony and an image of the city
which unlimitedly makes a leap into the future.
