Japanese National Flag-0008
This is a classic silk Japanese National Flag from World War Two. The flag is made from silk that is age toned to an attractive golden/cream color. The silk screened, red sun in the center has faded with age and is now a light red shade. It measures approximately 24.” high X 34.5″ long and has been folded for many years. The material is in relatively nice condition with some scattered thinning, a small tear along the upper right-hand edge and a few holes as is typically found in World War Two era vintage flags. The fly and hoist side edges are hem stitched for strength. There are no corner tabs or tie strings; not sure there ever were…
This is a vintage World War Two era national flag that would look nice on the wall behind a mannequin or set up, hanging from an Arisaka.
