Hands down, nice flag.  I don't see a dedication but has the slogan, Buun Chokyu or "May Your Military Fortunes Be Long-Lasting" written vertically down the left-hand side.  There are a ton of names signed on the flag and the corner tab appears to have kanji characters printed on it.  They normally give the name of a company that  has provided the flag (donated or sold).  Newspapers of the day often gave away flags as advertisements.  You might also see shrine names sometimes printed there as well.   Yasukuni Shrine  sold or gave away many flags during the war.
