The flag of the village of Shinjo is green with mark.
Tomislav Šipek, 08 January 2014
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.
