That's the recipient's name; 後藤亮二郎 Gotō Ryōjirō. However, I'm skeptical about the authenticity of the flag. The polite title right after his name seems like 寿, but I presume the writer actually wanted to write 君, and failed it.
- The position of the red circle is not at the right center.
- The writing right to the recipient's surname 後藤 looks like 大和心？ 花櫻花, but this doesn't make much sense. I think this could be an incomplete copy of a famous waka (Japanese poem) 敷島の大和心を人問はば朝日に匂ふ山櫻花.
- The right end one of the three signatures at the top of the flag is 後藤昇幹司, but this is very uncommon givnen name. In addition, the right component of 幹 is not correct.
