The flag of the village of Kitagwa is green with mark.
Tomislav Šipek, 29 October 2013
The emblem the kanji 北 ( kita, north) and 川 ( gawa, river) of the name
Kitagawa. The 川 forms a circle, signifying a single united entity, while the 北
shows rapid progress in the form of a great bird (see
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peng_%28mythology%29) with wings spread.

The village emblem was adopted in 1890 but there is no flag law.
The green flag has a white village emblem in the center.
The village emblem is stylized kanji 北川 Kitagawa.
The circle symbolizes an integration and the wings do a surge like
a big bird.
