Hello,

I do apologize to anyone who may be offended by this thread. No offense is intended! I spent some time with an elderly gentleman today. The attached photo is of a small flag that he has had since WW2.
He was doing recon in an abandoned cave & found a backpack. This flag was in it.

Apparently it was common practice for soldiers to carry personal flags back then. Is this a Japanese Good Luck flag?

If anyone could help us translate it, we will be extremely grateful.

Thank you!​
