Using Google's rough Japanese-English Beta translator of the village information we come up with the following meaning:
As for the acute angle which extends to the left development of the village, as for circle harmony of the village people is displayed. In addition when the village flag is drawn up, the color green of the foundation means peace, as for the color orange of village symbol shows and displays the affluence of the good crops.
Phil Nelson, 30 October 2004, with text corrections by Nozomi Kariyasu
colour of field: green for peace
colour of emblem: orange for bumper crop
stylized hiragana Gi ぎ
circle for villagers harmony
Nozomi Kariyasu, 25 February 2006
The Gi forms a circle with some strokes extending in an arrow shape from
the centre towards the hoist. The arrow shape represents the
development/growth of the village, the circle for the villagers' harmony.
The green signifies peace and the orange an abundant crop.
