Signed flag translation help request
 
3 Attachment(s)
Hi guys, I recently bought this flag. I realize there is too much writing to translate it all but was hoping to get some general information about the writing on the flag.

Please let me know if more photos are needed.
Thanks Tino

I don't know how you do it, not only do you have to translate the Kanji but also have to deal with individual handwriting.

I really appreciate your help! I will try to find some more slogans on the kanji slogans and translation thread.

1, 2 and 3 are what Guy translates for you.
All the remaining Kanji are basically names.
4 basically are sentences about advises from buddhist point of view.
About kanji, not that difficult to learn. She can do it, anyone can do it too.

Thanks for the additional information!
Are there any indicators when the flag was signed?

Unfortunately, there is nil as not a single date was written.

But we can presume pre-1945!
