    Does anybody know how to distinguish whether or not an Order of the Rising Sun is from WW2? Thanks for you time. I am dabbling a bit in Japanese militaria.

    Flag of the Rising Sun.
    Basic design in several variation existed from the middle ages.
    It was formally established as the battle flag of the Imperial Japanese Army in 1870 and the navy adopted it in 1889.

    I have referred to the Japanese wiki
    æ—*日旗 - Wikipedia

    Wish above help.
