Surely the crème de la crème of flags? The Japanese flag manages the tricky juggling act of being functional, yet stylish. A single red circle on a white flag, it s very easy to reproduce, and can be adapted to any number of clothing articles. Also, unlike most flags, it actually is something, a rising sun for the land of the rising sun, brilliant. I mean, what's the German flag supposed to be? The only flag that comes close to the Japanese is the Canadian offering, coincidentally also riding the Whites Stripes' red and white bandwagon, and I think the sun knocks a leaf into a furry hat. And, if for some reason you feel that flags need stripes, and Japans is somehow lacking, there's even a stripey variant! Great Flag!
