The large corner tabs are made from a heavy gauze, covered by thick coat of gold paint; both are firmly sewn into their corners. All tie strings are present and well attached. The fly and hoist side edges are hem re-enforced for strength.
There are a couple of small holes located near the 3 and 6 o’clock positions. Some staining may also be seen circling the rim of the red sun.
There are 5 large kanji characters for Ki Buun Chokyu or “I Pray Your Military Fortunes Are Long Lasting” written vertically and located closest to the hoist side edge of the flag. The flag was “Presented to: Mr. Yamauchi Minosuke”, written vertically in large characters in the upper left-hand corner.
This is a classically beautiful Japanese hinomaru yosegaki from the Second World War.
