The flag of Japan
The flag of Japanese Navy

The flag of Japan shows a red sun (rising sun) in the middle of a white field. It is called "Nisshoki" (日章旗) formally in Japan. But Japanese people usually call it "Hinomaru" (日の丸) which means "circle of the sun". The Japanese navy uses the other flag; the sun has rays. This flag represents the heat of the sun.
