    Default Good Luck Flag-Heavily Signed

    I wanted to share with you a flag that I recently picked up. It caught my eye for a few reasons: I don't think that I have ever seen a flag with this many signatures. As a matter of fact, there were so many people who wanted to sign this flag, that they added extra material to the fly side of the flag so that folks could place their signatures. Then, after the edge portion was filled, they turned the flag over and began to write again on the reverse. In addition, writing on the sun portion is done but was not normally the custom. This flag has a number of signatures added onto the red orb, but also has the mantra, "Samuhara" which indicated a blessing for the owner against bullets and/or harm in battle placed there twice as well. Any comments are welcome as well as an invitation to anyone who might have a flag that could be called "covered" in characters to post their flag here.

    What an impressive flag! Whoever was the recipient of this flag evidently was very popular. Thanks for posting this very interesting piece.
