Original Item: Only One Available. The Rising Sun Flag design was originally used by feudal warlords in Japan during the Edo period. On May 15, 1870, as a policy of the Meiji government, it was adopted as the war flag of the Imperial Japanese Army, and on October 7, 1889, it was adopted as the naval ensign of the Imperial Japanese Navy.

The vice admiral flag and rear admiral flags were used from January 4, 1897 until end of World War II.

Between November 29, 1871 and the end of WWII the state flag with red border was used also for vice admiral.
