Japanese Battle Flag-0010 "SOLD"
This beautiful cotton Japanese Battle Flag has only minor staining and is not small, measuring approximately 11.00″ high X 13.25″ long. The flag comes still attached to its original black and white striped bamboo flag pole, along with its gold wooden finial firmly in place. Both flag and pole are in very good condition (see photos). Faux brown paper corner tabs, made to look like leather are sewn into place and the flag’s tie strings have it securely fastened to the pole. Many of these flags were given to the men as they departed for military training. Period photographs often show them carrying these as they were accompanied down to waiting trains or ships, preparing to take them either to training outposts or assignments overseas. Tough to find with its original pole.
