Imperial Japanese Good Luck Signed Flag-00112
This silk Imperial Japanese Good Luck Flag measures approximately 28.5″ high X 34.” long and is in generally very good condition. The silk screened, red sun is still deep red in color, while the white field has darkened due to age. The brown paper corner tabs, made to look like leather, are firmly in place as are their tie strings. The hoist and fly side edges have been hem stitched to preserve those edges of the flag.
There are a few pin sized holes scattered about, but barely noticeable. There is also a battle stain, seen running horizontally, near the nine o’clock position. Directly above that is a small, red seal that measures approximately 1.” square. Unfortunately, I am unable to read it. The large vertical line of kanji characters located closest to the hoist side edge give the name of the flag’s former owner, “Presented to: Mr. Wakai Akizoo“. Next to that is the popular slogan for Buun Chokyu or “May Your Military Fortunes Be Long Lasting”.
This is an attractive flag….
