Default Japanese flag opinions...

My overall opinion of this flag is favorable, however I'm having a hard time making out any slogans. Usually I can spot one or two.
Thoughts?

Regards,

I have some reservation of this flag as it does not give me that natural's smell.
Anyway,
1. Only
2. Victory
3. Tiles ( roof)
4. intact, not destroyed
5. Broken
6. jade

I do not know about whether Japanese also has that 3,4,5 and 6, but it is a Chinese sentence ( but it should be written in 6,5 3 and 4 !)

Mr. Chen, in Japanese 玉砕 [gyokusai / shattered jade] means "banzai charge" -- the term probably was borrowed from this Chinese maxim.

瓦全玉砕
Gazen Gyokuzai
Honorable Death [玉砕 / shattered jewel] to a Meaningless Existence [瓦全]. The Chinese characters 瓦全 literally mean "全=all; 瓦= Roof tiles"


This was written by a civilian as an inspirational patriotic slogan ... not an encouragement to prepare for a banzai charge.

Here's the best I can do.

Top:
忠孝
Chūkō
Loyalty and Filial Piety

Right margin:
祝出征
Shuku Shussei
Celebration/Congratulations for your Departure for Military Service

押川義君
Oshikawa Aiyoshi-kun [not certain about the first part of his given name 義]


Bordering the Sun. Written in katakana by a girl named Yaeko; I have about a 40% comfort rate with this explanation:


ヤエコ Yaeko
シゲゲンキデ Shige genkide [Shige, stay healthy; but Shige must mean something else, the kanji for his given name is not Shige]
二イショウケンメテ Ni isshoukenme [while making strong efforts]
ヤテクイ。Yatekui [do it]


義勇奉公
Giyū Hōkō
Loyal & Brave Public Service

Poem:
只勝利 / Mere Victory; advantage
大魂 Dai tamashī / Great Soul
忠勇無双 Chūyūmusō / Peerless loyalty and bravery
加藤中将
Katō Chūjō -- Lt. General / Vice Admiral Katō

Written at a diagonal slant from 6 o'clock:
撃ちてし奮闘止まむ
Uchite shi funtō yamamu!
Never Quit Fighting and Making Strong Efforts!
The usual slogan is just 撃ちてし止まむ Never Quit Fighting

8:30
一忠報国 Total Loyalty for the Country; original slogan is 一死報国 Die for the country

必勝頑張
Hisshō Ganbaru
Strive Hard for Assured Victory

9:00
不言実行
Fugen Jikkō
Deeds, Not Words

米英撃滅
Bei-Ei Gekimetsu
Destroy America & England

忠老一致
Chū rō itchi
Conformity with loyalty and elders

10:00
必勝
Hisshō
Assured Victory

洗心
Senshin
Clean your Mind/Heart/Spirit
