The flag of the village of Shimojo is blue with mark.
Tomislav Šipek, 15 May 2014

The village emblem was adopted on Oct 19th 1989 but there is no flag law. The blue flag has a white village emblem in the center. The village emblem is a stylized katakana シ Shi of shimojo in a form  of a bird flying to a giant sky. The inner circle symbolizes the villagers' conformity and the Sun. As a whole, it represents an image of the village making a leap  for the future without limit.
