Japanese invasion of China, 1940

Following the creation of a Chinese central government in Nanking, 30 March 1940, under Japanese control, a national flag was adopted by the pro-Japanese government of China. It consisted of the five stripes (red over yellow over blue over white over black) with a flame in the centre with the words "Peace, Reconstruction, Anticommunism" (in Chinese characters).

This is the flag of the second pro-Japanese government of Nankin which was raised in 1941 or 1942 after the first one sanked. The Japanese deliberately chose to confuse minds about the true authority with this Chinese looking flag.

The pro-Japanese government led by Wang Jing-wei in Chung-ching around March, 1940, adopted a flag. It consisted of a blue sky, white son and a red field, with a yellow pennant attached. Six words, in Chinese, appeared on the flag: "Peace, anti-communism, save the country." The Chinese characters were dropped on February 5, 1943 because of the appearance.

There were several other pro-Japanese governments set up by the Japanese occupational troops. The first was in Beijiing. They adopted the five color flag, and used a different national anthem. It was later changed to the flag used in Chung-ching, currently used in Taiwan.

Prior to World War II, the Japanese set up a puppet state in Hopei. The flag used was the Chinese five striped flag.

From 1937 to 1940, Japan occupied Shanghai. The flag used was yellow with a green and red yin-yang in the center. Does anyone know the symbolism of the flag?
