Original Japanese WWII Good Luck Silk Flag

Regular price $195.00

Item Description

Original Item: One-of-a-kind. This is a hand printed silk flag from WW2 Japan. It has the classic meatball red circle at center with white (now off-white) background and measures approximately 32 x 24. Frayed at the corners with slight damage to the interior, this was used by a soldier for prayers and good luck.

The Japanese call their country's flag hinomaru, which translates literally to "sun-round", referencing the red circle on a white field.

The Good Luck Flag, known as hinomaru yosegaki in the Japanese language, was a traditional gift for Japanese servicemen deployed during the military campaigns of the Empire of Japan, though most notably during World War II. The flag, given to a soldier, was a national flag signed by friends and family, often with short messages wishing the soldier victory, safety, and good luck.
