Signed Japanese (Army) Meatball Flag



One of the most visually appealing items to be collected from the 2nd World War were the personal flags carried by the Japanese soldier for good luck. This example is a perfect representation of such a flag, with a perfect displayable size of 32.5″ wide by 25.5″ tall. There are signatures and good luck slogans written all over the flag as well as a dedication to the original owner, and even a large temple/shrine stamp. Overall this flag  shows it’s age well with a few small stains from the field and a light yellow patina throughout. While it was folded the center red circle did an almost eclipse looking pattern stain, very neat looking! Both corners are still intact with the original string, one corner has a kanji like pin attached to it. This is one of the best looking flags I have had the pleasure of owning, if this one could be framed, it would look fantastic on the wall!
