Hello and Greetings. In addition to the Yosegaki Hinomaru that I posted yesterday, I have received pictures of three additional flags that have been made available. One of these three has an unuusal drawing on it that appears to be a face. Assistance on any translations would be appreciated. This flag also has what appears to be mutliple shrine symbols on it. I have attached several pictures.

Does the flag appear to be authentic?

Thank you.

Hello. Can anyone help me with a translation of what I believe is a slogan from a flag? Thank you for your kindness.

It's part of a longer phrase
皇風洽六合
Kōfū rikugō ni ameneku in kanbun
It means May the righteous wind of the Emperor blow to all corners of the realm

Thank you Majestic. Do you know if this phrase is unusual to find on Yosegaki Hinomaru?

This is the first time I've ever seen it. (But...this is not unusual. I see unusual, new things all the time). It seems to be a phrase that had some currency during the war. It appears on some monuments from the war era.
