WWII Japanese Battle Flag

by Chris Hughes (07/24/07).

Here is an Imperial Japanese Army battle flag that I got from a WWII 77th Division veteran who fought in the Pacific Theater. He “liberated” the flag from a soldier on the island Cebu. I’ve never had the kanji translated. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The gentleman in the picture holding the flag is the the vet. He was a wonderful person to talk with.
