The rising sun image most Ratsuners use is the Naval rising sun not the Army. Countries most oppressed by the Japanese (China, Korea) have the most intolerance for it. Veterans who are upset by it are becoming very scarce in N America and soon will all be gone along with their anger. So what's left? Time heals all wounds.

 

With a name like Kim Dongwoo (Korean I assume) I would guess he has been influenced by his parents or grandparents and is culturally biased against the Japanese. There is little love lost between Korea and Japan for centuries.

They still use the pattern on  Naval ships mostly . Besides they used both flags when invading counties so whats the difference.


Throw on some Weber sidedrafts, Rising Sun hood.... call it good

None that I can see as far as using them, visually the naval one is nicer looking.  Wikki says US forces use then in Japan. As far as Kim Dongwoo is concerned he can come look at my 'Rising Sun" Ratsun sticker on my Datsun and then piss off.

If you were not directly affected by a rising sun flag then you were taught to dislike it. Most old vets are in homes so I don't think I'll offend them much, not my intent anyway. When they are all gone it won't matter much. I Google imaged the rising sun flag to confirm that it is the naval one I have and one thing led to another.

Has anyone tried doing a ghosted flag? I'm thinking of wrinkle paint black flag, then satin black over the top of it, shoot some clear on it and call it a day. In my head I see a textured finish that you would almost have to be right on top of to see. Any thoughts?
