    Default Japanese Flag

    A special someone got me this Japanese flag for my militaria collection (since I always wanted something Japanese and this is the Japanese item i have) for my birthday from 'Time Traveler Militaria'. I have received other items as well.

    This is a picture of the flag that was on the website, I can take pictures of the flag if anyone wants.

    There are lots of stains and holes, it seems like a period piece to me

    Let me know what you think

    Looks to be a period hinomaru with white leather corner tabs. Nice Flag overall. Check out Imperial Japanese Good Luck Flags and One-Thousand Stitch Belts by Michael Bortner

    I agree it appears, from the pictures, to be a war period piece. I strongly recommend Dr. Bortner's book.
