Thank you for coming! This antique flag, dating back to the Taisho era (July 30, 1912 – December 25, 1926), features the family crest of a samurai. Known as “gogatsu nobori” in Japanese, it was traditionally raised high into the sky to announce the birth of a male child to the heavenly gods and to seek their protection. It typically displays the family crests of both households involved. These flags are commonly used as decorations for the Children’s Day festival, which falls on May 5th, also known as Tango no Sekku, symbolizing wishes for the growth and prosperity of children. The artwork on this flag is hand-drawn and depicts a famous piece titled “Sakata Kaidomaru” by the renowned ukiyo-e artist Utagawa Kuniyoshi from the Edo period. Due to its age, the flag may show signs of deterioration over time. Please examine the images carefully. The dimensions of the flag are approximately 7.72 meters in length, 74 centimeters in width, with a weight of 617 grams. It is made of cotton. Please check the photos carefully for condition.
