Mickey with the Japanese Battle Flag?

17 Jan

From Dark Roasted Blend.

Mr Broke Hoedown tells me that Mickey’s flying the battle flag of the old Japanese empire. Anybody out there able to translate the text?

    I’m pretty sure that translates out to, “Mongello!”

    My Japanese friend here at work says it basically says “Mickey’s Army” or “Army of Mickeys” and that it seems to be from a really old comic book.

    My friend from Japan confirms that it says “Mickey’s army” and that it is from a comic strip. The flag by the way is called the Optimist.

    Mickey is carrying a regimental battle flag, hence the white area at the bottom of the flag. Not used since 1945.
