The flag of imperial japanese navy ship is 16 striped "hinomaru".

but, on this game, their flags are non striped "hinomaru".

and now japanese self defense navy use this 16 striped "hinomaru".

please change to 16 striped "hinomaru" on this game.

16 striped "hinomaru" is treated as the national of japanese flag in the world.

( therefore japanese self defense force of navy use this flag on now.)

The Kyokujitsu-ki (Rising Sun flag) is considered offensive and controversial in a few countries. Given that the Japanese naval ensign looks very, very, VERY similar to the Imperial Japanese Army flag, the decision is to use the regular Hinomaru instead of the Kyokujitsu-ji to avoid giving offense. Also, any depiction of the Kyokujitsu-ki on the forums is forbidden for the same reasons.

 

This is not likely to be changed. If you want to mod it in, you still can, as CrimsonGabi has just linked.

caps lawwwwk heeaaww yeah


and to answer your question, wargaming has stated that their policy is to avoid usage of the rising sun flag and swastikas within all of their games. those who wish to have historically accurate designs are free to use mods, however uploading screenshots of aforementioned mods isn't allowed on the forums.

^ Pretty much what he say.

 

There is a mod for the historical IJN flag on this thread. Use that instead.
