The flag of the town of Shirakawa is green with mark.
Tomislav Šipek, 31 March 2014
The town emblem was adopted on May 10th 1963 but there is no flag law. The
green flag has a white town emblem in the center. The town emblem is a stylized
hiragana し Shi of Shirakawa. The circle symbolizes the towns peace, the sharp
curved line does a surge and the town peoples solidarity and a service. As a
whole, the graceful design represents a natural home town Shirakawa with green
mountains and clear waters.
