    I would say both are good.

    The top one is almost certainly blood stained.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Do you like more the first flag? you think it has more history, blood ....
    But the second flag has written more letters and I also like this.
    I want to buy.
    Thank you very much for your help. Thanks for your opinions
    I had long searched for an original and beautiful flag ...

    Gee, hate to make a negative comment about the top flag. Did the ink go all the way through? It is a reverse image. Additionally, the calligraphy is not very good.

    You're right. I researched some more and I do not like the Kanji.
    I have in my house the second flag. But still I doubt if it is still original.
    How about writing this Kanji?
    I have a bit wet with water, a word and the ink will not smudge.
    I made the pictures upside down, the corners should have been the right side
