    Default Rising Sun Flag

    Hi all , i hope you have enjoyed the Christmas festivities

    I got this flag a few weeks ago to go into my collection so i thought i would show it . It is very salty but that is my preference There are kanji radiating from the centre in the white panels but it is very faded and relatively small . I would really appreciate any help with translations if they can be seen . I believe i can see the Kanji for "loyalty" in the first close up left side top , but would love some help
    Cheers guy's

    Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow
    Across that angry or that glimmering sea...

    Hard to read. Looks like a combination of maxims and names ... but some are so faded or written so "grassy" that I cannot read.

    [??]
    Katsu
    Victory

    忠孝 [??]
    chūkō [??]
    loyalty and filial piety [??]

    岩崎 [??]
    Iwasaki [??]
    Iwa is very clear, the "saki" is too faded to confirm, but I think I can make it out. Don't know about the other faded kanji.

    吉田 [??]
    Yoshida. I'm guessing at the 田 ... but if I squint real hard and look at it from an angle .... and with another gin and tonic .... it might be 田.

    [??]
    Gen or Hara .... can't make out the rest

    兵士武 [??]
    Heishi Bu/Mu/Take ....
    Soldier Military .... something

    Default Might Also Be ....

    勝?? might be 勝孝 Katsunori/Katsutaka ... a given name.

    Hi Alan,

    I like that flag. It's certainly seen it's share of service. If only it could talk.

    Regards,
    Stu

    Marty , Rod and Stu , i appreciate your kind words , thank you .

    Guy , my train of thought regarding the kanji was as yours , ie : a mixture of names and slogans , my thinking behind that is that most are only three kanji long and most slogans have two or four in length , would i be on the right lines there ?
