aving been abroad to Japan several times, one thing is certain from my experiences… Japanese culture has a history of caring for minimalism and iconography. That’s not to say that Japan doesn’t have its own visual/sensory overload problems, but they somehow find a way to make it all work together. So when I stumbled across these flags via Wikipedia, (which, to the best of my knowledge, each flag is supposed to represent specific municipalities in Japan) I was really inspired by how considerate the designers were who conceptualized these icons. I think the term “a little goes a long way” is appropriate for these wonderful flags.
As a side note, I’d love to own shirts of each of these icons. :P
