The flag of the village of Asahi is green with mark.
Tomislav Šipek, 09 May 2014
The village emblem was adopted on Sep 7th 1972 by Notice No 20 and the flag
was adopted on Nov 20th 1972 by Notice No 21. The yellow green flag has a white
village emblem in the center. The village emblem is a stylized katakana ア A of
Asahi. The circle symbolizes the Sun and the village’s progress. As a whole, it
represents an image of the village making a leap strongly in fresh streams and
the green nature and with the villagers' solidarity. The white color stands for
a snow of Mt. Hachimori and pure, healthy villagers character, the yellow green
color for the brightness of the nature contrasting with the Sun and the
village’s peace and the development. The flag proportion is 2:3.
