Japanese Battle Flag- 28" X 32"
This is a beautiful silk Japanese Rayed Battle Flag. The flag measures approximately 28.” high X 32.” long. The colors are bright, although the white field is now nicely age-toned to a cream color. The fly and hoist side edges have additional stitches added for strength. The gold foil pebbled corner tabs are firmly sewn into place; there is fading of color due to age. There is a small tear in the silk near one of the tabs (see image). The white cotton tie strings are both in place.
This is an iconic example of the Japanese Battle Flag seen in so many photographic images.
