Original WWII Japanese NATIONAL FLAG WITH KANJI Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified
Original WWII Japanese NATIONAL FLAG WITH KANJI And Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified. Most Japanese troops during the second world war carried a personal flag. They had practical as well as patriotic uses, such as marking positions to keep them safe from friendly aircraft while advancing. One piece example is 68cm x 52cm. An approximately 22cm diameter red “Himaru” is sewn to the center of the flag’s white field. We placed a helmet on the flag for size reference. Handwritten, in black, around the Himaru are numerous kanji characters. Shows the expected age and use. Has some slight staining and some moth holes (see photos). This flag was most likely an “occupational” flag as opposed to a personal off to war flag. The kanji appears to be authentic. in good salty condition and it’s very displayable and could be framed and it would look nice. 100% Guaranteed to be authentic and is certified by The Gettysburg Museum Of History and comes with our Museum COA (certificate of authenticity). A rare piece of WWII history. DO NOT MISS THIS!
