This is a neat little item. Priced cheap as it needs a repair but will be cool when fixed. The bag says something about 2600th anniversary which I believe is a reference to 1940 when Japan celebrated the 2600th anniversary of the Japanese empire mythically founded by Emperor Jimmu. It is an interesting date as Japan was heavily engaged in China and was being cornered into a deeper war with the western powers. Little telescoping flag pole broken in the middle. It came with the little metal ring shown in the photo. I do not like fixing things nor am I any good at it anyway. There are two small strings with which to attach a flag. Once fixed this should be about 34cm long.
