Introduction

The party flag is based on the flag of the Tohokai and the swastika. The latter is very popular in Japan because it has been used as the symbol of Japanese temples for hundreds of years.
Isao Endo (General Secretary of NSJAP), 29 November 1999

This is the flag of the New Axis.
"Jordi," 08 September 2001

The NSJAP was founded in 1982. Its website seems to equate the NSJAP and the New Axis; maybe they merged? If so, the below would presumably be the pre-merger NSJAP flag.

I found two websites showing two flag images:

"The National-Socialist Party of Great Japan [Dai Nippon Kokka Shakai Tou] was founded by Junjuro Ishikawa in 1934 and was active till 1937."
...and appears to have used a Nazi-pattern flag with a character in the place of a swastika. The character is I think 國 ("kuni," the flag shows it super-bolded for some reason), which machine translates as "country" (odd, I always though that was "koku," which would from the transliteration appear to be used in the party name?) <jp}nspgj.gif>
The New Axis flag at http://www.nsjap.com/axis/intro.html is different from the logos of the entity on the same site: the swastika's ends are angled. I wonder which version is correct.

The New Axis/NSJAP flag shown on their site is slightly different from the logos of the entity on the same site: the swastika's ends are angled. I wonder which version is correct.
