Flag, Japanese, Hinomaru yosegaki


Great genuine WWII Japanese flag, Hinomaru yosegaki. A traditional gift to Nipponese servicemen deployed during the campaigns of the Empire of Japan, such flags were offered by their families and friends, who would write well wishes and other messages of encouragement on it. 

The present flag, which bears prayers of long life and victory in battle, features no less than a hundred signatures. The most prestigious name is Kazuzaburo Umehara, War Leader of the Nishinari Ward in Osaka.

Dimensions: about 27.5in x 38.5in.

Excellent overall condition.
