The flag of the town of Minobu is purple with mark.
Tomislav Šipek, 28 April 2014

The town emblem was adopted on Dec 1st 2005 but there is no flag law. The purple flag has a red, green and blue three color town emblem in the center. The town emblem is a stylized M of Minobu. The blue color stands for the people who is making a leap on green earth surrounded by Mt. Minobu and Mt. Fuji, the red color for the brilliant future and the green color for dreams, hopes and full calm. As a whole, it represents an image of the town which is forcefully making a leap.

There's also white circle on the drawing. Does that have a meaning too?

No ,The town Notice No79 does not mention the meaning of white circle.

I see. In the mon the white circle is merely part of the background. Placed on the purple flag it keeps a white background, and fimbration if you will, apparently for better contrast.
