A large number of soldiers run across the field while carrying their rifles and a flag in Japan during the war, 1964. The Rising Sun Flag (旭日旗 Kyokujitsu-ki?) design was originally used by feudal warlords in Japan during the Edo period.[1] On May 15, 1870, as a policy of the Meiji government, it was adopted as the war flag of the Imperial Japanese Army, and on October 7, 1889, it was adopted as the naval ensign of the Imperial Japanese Navy.[2] It is still used in Japan as a symbol of tradition and good fortune, and is incorporated into commercial products and advertisements. The flag is currently flown by the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force and a modified version is flown by the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force. It is viewed as a symbol associated with Japanese imperialism in the early 20th century in South Korea,[3][4][5] China,[6] and by some veterans in the United States[7][8][9] because of its use by Japan's military forces during that period.
