The Japanese golf national team of the Tokyo Olympics has released a uniform with a design reminiscent of the Rising Sun Flag.

On the 1st, a photo of the uniform of the Japan national team for the Tokyo Olympics, which was released the day before, was posted on the homepage of the Japan Golf Association, but it included “red and pink stripes at an angle of 45 degrees to the right.” According to the explanation written by the Japan Golf Association, “The design concept is” Rising to the Challenge. ” The colors are red, pink, and blue, and the image is of Hinomaru and Japanese nature. “

Coach Michiko Hattori, the women’s representative, said, “In terms of design, the image of the rising sun in Japan is based on diagonal stripes.” Combining the design and the explanation of coach Hattori, there is an aspect that the uniform is reminiscent of the Rising Sun Flag.

The Rising Sun Flag was used by the former Japanese army as a military flag before the defeat of World War II. Currently, it is used by the Self-Defense Forces as a flag of the Self-Defense Forces, and there are places where it is also designed and used by the private sector.

Prior to this, on the 18th of last month, Chief Cabinet Secretary Katsunobu Kato was asked at a regular press conference that “there is a move to enact a law that can punish the use of the Rising Sun Flag in Korea.” Its design imitates the sun like the Hinomaru, and is a flag for celebrations of childbirth and holidays. It is still widely used in Japan, and it is not appropriate to point out that it is a specific political or discriminatory claim. Insisted

At that time, spokesman Choi Young-sam of the Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs said at a regular press conference, “Japan knows better than anyone that the Rising Sun Flag is recognized by neighboring countries as a symbol of past militarism and imperialism. I think there is. “
