Sup /jp/. I has a question.
Why doesn't japan use the version of their flag with the sun rays anymore? Just the circle looks kinda lame.
...Indeed I did. That's what I get for double tabbing. Ignore this!
In b4 all too predictable responses.
not /jp/ but the version with the sun rays is the naval flag.
countries tend to have different flags for different occasions.
The Japanese Imperial Navy flag has been permanently retired, along with that entity.
