The flag is inappropriate because it represents the government of Japan, whose responsible for atrocious war crimes, during WW2.

Western equivalent would be a BMW with a Nazi flag on the hood.

Always liked this car. I think Rise did some work on it as it was on their website for a while. Congrats on the purchase. Must be a fun ride.

This. Not only is it incredibly tacky, it is very offensive to a lot of people. I would remove it for either or both of those reasons...

Wikipedia article on flag:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rising_Sun_Flag
These things make news in Korea all the time for inappropriate use.

It's a sick car, and because it is, if you're unlucky, someone may take it upon themselves to vandalize your car.

Iirc, that's the Rise logo. Not really his fault that the flag is there, he bought it like that.

Same thing happened when GSP was sponsored by a Gi company that also stupidly uses that for their logo. Korean fighters made a huge stink about it, and he stopped wearing them.

The logo is still used by their navy but rarely shown. Most of the time you'll see it is in the extreme political parties in Japan (their version of the Nazi party) when they are doing their demonstrations to try to kick all Koreans and Chinese out of their country.

Also Asahi Shinbun (newspaper company) uses one that is similar, but totally unrelated.

It would be smart and courteous to remove it, even if the company that modded it is ignorant enough to use it as their logo

If you want to put a flag on your car, go for it. You should be aware of what it represents though. For some context it is like unwittingly putting up a nazi flag (not just a swastika) on your car. Even if you don't know what it means for whatever reason, it's fine, but other people will.

You could argue that this flag represents even worse than the nazi flag, as Imperial Japan was far, far worse than Nazi germany in terms of what they did to people, and how widespread their line of thinking was throughout the country. With the Nazis, the atrocities were mostly kept within the higher ranks of the military, and kept from public. That wasn't the case in Japan back then.

I was mainly pointing it out since I know not everyone has the money to redo a paint job (regardless of how insensitive it might be), but since he's planning on redoing it anyway, not really relevant anymore lol.

I'll make sure I tell Raid3n that he probably shouldn't put his up (it's called the rising sun right? Just wanna make sure it's the correct one). Honestly though, I've never understood putting someone else's flag on your stuff. Sure it looks cool, but then there's situations like these that arise if you aren't of that nation/group/whatever. You might not know about negative connotations that come with it.

That's like saying, "I bought this Porsche with a swastika (sp?) on the side, I'm having it removed and going to have it put on the headliner".
It's your car, do what you like with it but just keep it in the back of your mind that you may seriously offend someone and they may take it out on your car.
