The flag of Higashi is blue with mark.
Tomislav Šipek, 19 April 2013
The village emblem was adopted on Apr 1st 1978 but there is no flag law.
The blue flag has a yellow village emblem in the center.
The village emblem is a combination of a stylized kanji 東 Higashi and the sun.
The ray symbolizes the rising sun from eastern horizon and the folding-fan does the village’s unlimited development.
The blue color stands for the villagers wisdom and the yellow color for the sun and the village’s rich crop.
