A fantastic WW2 Japanese telescopic parade flag. The flag comes with its original cloth bag. The flag stick is a 3 piece telescopic example in black and white celluloid / plastic. The top of the stick has a gold painted ball finial.
The flag itself is cotton and shows the national Hinomaru red circle on a white background.
The corners of the flag at the hoist end are both reinforced with leather. When fully extended the flag stick measures 33.5 cm and when closed 12 cm.
The cotton flag measures 28 cm long by 22 cm tall.
The original cloth bag is titled ‘National Flag’ and was once white but has now browned with age.
The bag measures 13 cm long by 5 cm wide.
An uncommon and complete item.
