    REGARDS AL

    We are the Pilgrims , master, we shall go
    Always a little further : it may be
    Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow
    Across that angry or that glimmering sea...

    Hi Hal, fantastic flag pole and markings. Those mums really stick out. Do you know what the figures at the top mean or say? I tried googling Japanese letters and couldn't make heads or tails out of it.

    That is a beauty. Is it for parade or would that be taken into battle?

    Thanks Hummel, I believe it was for civilian, rather than military use. Best Regards, Hal

    I could be totally out of my league here, but I know in Western militaries the guidon evolved out of the spear, which is why it is important to pay attention to the spade when marching.

    The head of this flag poll is absolutely gorgeous, so I wonder if it is from a garrison standing display or ceremonial flag. Where the cherry blossom is more symbolic, much like the eagle on a American flag.

    Are there three toppers, or just two?

    It is gorgeous.
