WWII Japanese Army Infantry Battle Flag

Silk, 710 mm x 840 mm, with black handpainted inscriptions, reinforced string ties, bright colours, stain-free fabric, extremely fine condition. Footnote: Many Japanese soldiers carried flags adorned with poems, words of encouragement, and patriotic phrases from family and peers. Some were even decorated with artwork. They were often tied to a bayonet or mounted on a rifle. American soldiers brought these home from Japan and often refer to them as "meatball" flags, as did the other Allied forces, due to the Japanese hinomaru or sun disk's prominence on aircraft, vehicles and flags.
