    Default Nobori with Kite theme artwork.

    I was admiring a nobori posted by another member and it occurred to me I had not posted photos of mine on this site. I have had several over the years but kept this one due to the Order of The Golden Kite artwork. I hope you enjoy viewing the photos.

    Regards,
    Stu

    Thanks Jareth.

    No, I have not had it translated. Perhaps I can entice Guy into that task but with all he does for us here and over at WAF I'm reluctant to ask for more. I'll have to sneak up on it by mentioning that it's not yet translated and how much I wish it were.

    Regards,

    Glad to oblige! But I cannot make out the red kanji on the right side.

    Thanks Guy. Much appreciated.

    This one has a sleeve at the top and I'm mounting it on a bamboo rod inside a shadowbox type frame. The flag will be free hanging suspended from the rod across the top but not touching either the front nor the back of the box.

    I'll add an additional photo of the red kanji on the right side. Is it that they are not clear or perhaps unknown to you? The top one looks almost like a stickman cartoon figure of sorts.

    Regards,
    Stu

    Nah, they're clear-- I just don't know them and cannot decypher the stroke order. All I can make out now is "stop" 止ま。。。

    I'll have a go at the top one.

    撃ちてし止まむ
    Uchiteshi yamamu.

    According to my wife, "mu" is written, but is actually pronounced "n" -- so, Uchite shi Yaman.

    I found a translation googling:
    Literally translated, the slogan means "Continue to Shoot, Do not Desist," but a more colloquial translation would be "Keep up the Fight" or "Stay on the Offensive."
    It's also the title of a wartime song:
