Default Help! Original WW2 Hinomaru Yosegaki (Japanese Flag)?

Hi,
Is this a original WW2 Japanese Flag or not?
Can someone translate some of the signatures, good luck wishes or prayers?
Best regards

Fabio

Yes, it's a good flag.

祈武運長久
Ki Bu'un Chōkyū
Wishes for Continued Fortune on the Battlefield


贈吉川定雄君
Zō Yoshikawa Sadao-kun
Presented to: Mr. Yoshikawa Sadao

The flag has mostly signatures; though, there are more than a few slogans and wishes for health, and for him to persevere (ganbare)

Top right, above the "presented to" kanji:
花は桜木
人は武士

Flower is a cherry tree
people are samurai
  • More like: "blossoms are to cherry trees as men are to samurai", or
  • "The best flowers are the cherry blossoms, the best individuals are the samurai."
Left of the recipient's name:
定雄君 元気で頑張れ
Sadao-kun, Energetically Persevere!

征け日本男子
Ike Nippon Danshi
Conquering Japanese Men!
[Ike is pronounced "ee-kay", does not rhyme with "like"]

8 o'clock:
眞勇誠忠
Shinyū Seichō
True Courage and Loyalty

9 o'clock
盡忠報国
Chinchō Hōkoku
Loyalty and Patriotism
