    Steve,

    Funny you should mention that -- I thought it was cut down too -- at the very base where it is stitched, it looks like the top edge of some kanji that was cut off.

    Thank you for the help and it is cut. Not sure why.

    I have heard these referred to as nobori, which is the Japanese word for banner I am told. Really just a long vertical flag of sorts. Perhaps Guy can confirm that for us. Most I've seen are 2 or more metres in length but some were over 3 metres and difficult to display unless outside on a pole.
    Regards,

    Hi Stu,

    幟 -- のぼり - nobori
    Japanese wiki

    Yes, "nobori" means streamer or banner [actually, "banner" is Hata] -- still, what we'd call a banner. It can be either vertical or horizontal.

    Both vertical and horizontal:

    Yes it looks to have been cut down to keep the fringe and enable it to be displayed in a frame , i think it looks good Chris
