I was listing this on our website tonight and thought I should add it here as it is such a cool flag.

 

Japanese Osaka Mainichi Press Cross Pacific Flight 1939 Flag. Cotton body, with foil like corners. Roughly twenty-seven by thirty-nine inches. Great printed graphics. The characters roughly translated it reads  OSAKA MAINICHI PRESS FLY AROUND THE WORLD, CROSS PACIFIC 1939.

 

There was also a newspaper in Tokyo at same time that sent their plane ( divine wind) also on a cross Pacific / around the world flight, in competition.

That's really interesting, I'll have to look it up and see what aircraft they used, I wonder what their future plans were? (sarcastic smiley not available).
