The village emblem was adopted in 1927 but there is no flag law. The green flag has a red village emblem with a white fimbiriation and its village kanji name in white at the bottom part. The village emblem is a stylized kanji 中山 Nakayama in commemoration of Emperor Gotoba’s visit to the place in Shinjo Village in 1221. It represents a wish for the villagers to firmly collaborate and promote a spirit of patriotism and pathetic provincialism.
