Description of the flag

Hinode town adopted its emblem on 1 June 1974 by Notice 10. No flag legislation but the above is used in practice.

flag proportion: 2:3

colour of field: purple

colour of emblem: white; diameter of emblem: 3/5 flag height; a stylized hiragana Hi ひ.
Nozomi Kariyasu, 10 April 2006

The hiragana hi ひ is accompanied by an arc to form a circle and the resulting logo bears a resemblance to the kanji hi 攵. The legislation does not describe the emblem in terms of either character, or say anything about the symbolism.
