    Default Japanese Flag.........

    Below is a silk Japanese flag I recently purchased. Pretty basic
    3'4" x 2'4" size flag. It is from the estate of a US Marine Vet,
    and supposedly "captured on Okinawa", though I have
    no real proof of this.

    Does it look ok, and are there any concerns
    regarding it's age.........?

    Proper construction and materials and nice to see the corner tags still in place! Looks like a nice WWII era flag to me! No red flags that I can see! Now...Okinawa? Well.... *shrugs*

    I know, I know - 'buy the item not the story', but this is the info
    the seller was told and passed on to me - Unfortunately,
    the Vet's name etc, is not known.........

    Steve, its a fine original piece. Unfortunately, its impossible to verify the story behind it.
    Anyway, its a great example.
    Cheers

    There was a Lot of Japanese on Okinawa....no reason it Couldn't have been picked up there. Not many survived, so the GI's had their pick of literally Tons of stuff...Would be a cool bit if it was true, but it'll just have to always be that unprovable one way or the other Possible or even Probable, might have been-could have been thing!

    I agree it has come from somewhere so there is no reason why it wouldn't have come from Okinawa.

    Thanks everyone. At least the Marine GI could have been on
    Okinawa, whether he picked it up there or not.........
