Imperial Japanese Good Luck Signed Flag-00104
Here is another salty, Imperial Japanese Good Luck Signed Flag. The flag is made from a heavy silk material and measures approximately 26.75″ high X 42.50″ long. The hoist and fly side edges are re-enforced with additional stitches. The center orb was silk screened onto the white field that is now age-toned to a cream shade. Heavy gold painted, gauze corner tabs are firmly sewn into both corner and each has its silk tie strings remaining.
The large vertical black kanji on the right-hand side, closest to the hoist side edge say Ki Buun Chokyu or “I Pray Your Military Fortunes Are Long Lasting”. To the right of that the characters read, “Presented to Mr. Morinaga Toshihisa”. The four large characters written horizontally across the top of the flag say, Jinchu Hokoku or “Loyally Serving the Nation”.
This salty flag is scarred and battle stained but the material is overall quite strong; another veteran of World War Two.
