Connecting (yo) and rjb (mi) represents the villagers' cooperation;
The shape of the wing expresses expansion; the outer circle
Symbolizes the villagers' harmony and solidarity; the surrounding
empty space symbolizes the affluent and expansive village spirit.

YOMITAN VILLAGE SONG
Lyrics by Chosho Tokayama
Composer: Seitoku Taba
1. The dawn is breaking, on the ridge of the tower.
The village of Zanpa, on the banks of River Hija
From the shadows of trees, where Zakimi Castle stood,
The peaceful village is aglow in the eastern sky.
Birthplace of "niman" (20,000) villagers,
A tranquil village.
2. The history is ancient, located in the north
From olden days inherited, the brilliant folk culture
Shines radiantly and proudly
The blossom of the Hanaui weaving
The "inku" shamisen music can be heard.
3. The new era has come, with fervent peace in our hearts.
Aim to improve peace and harmony.
To build a village united with man and nature
Brothers and sisters, let us stand hand in hand
Let us move forward with the banner of independence.
