The Lost Japanese Colors

Signers of the Flag: Home in 1945

The flag was purchased this last year for the sole purpose of preserving its history.  It measures 40" x 57" and is a rather large flag in comparison to other personal Japanese flags. The plan is to track down the living signers and to get the history and the circumstances that brought all of these Marines together at that point in time.  This will be a work in progress.  I have taken detailed pictures of all the signatures and will post those along with the information that I find out about that Marine.  If I am able to get in touch with the Marine, I will post what I find out.  I will also post close up pictures of the Japanese words.  In the center of the flag, I have been since told that it includes the name Hideki Tojyo, Victory, Okinawa, and Japan but I am not sure if this translation is correct. If you have any questions, please email me at Admin@colorslost.org.  Thanks!
