Large Japanese military flag, 26 1/2" x 36", not including fringe, featuring a gold eagle atop a white floral-shaped field with cherry blossoms, all on a maroon field. It is framed by a knotted and tasseled gold fringe on three sides. This was most likely the flag of a home defense group or youth league during World War II. The flag is accompanied by a collapsible flag pole and tripod, and by two finials, one in the shape of a cherry blossom, and the other in the shape of a chrysanthemum, both of which are Japanese national symbols. The entire assembly is stored in a hard case covered with brown leather. The chrysanthemum finial is moderately dented and misshapen, but the package as a whole is in very good shape.
