Hiraoka Flag Store (平岡国旗店, 1887 – Present) is a Japanese flag manufacturing company founded in Kyoto in 1887 (Meiji 20). The firm was founded by Shinjiro Hiraoka (初代の平岡新次郎は) who at the time also ran a Kimono business. Recognizing a demand for flags during the Russo-Japanese War (1904 – 1905), Hiraoka focused his energies on the flag business. He remained in operation throughout the Pre-War and WWII eras and, as Kyoto was never bombed, remains in operation today as Hiraoka Flag Manufacturing Co., Ltd. The company remains in the Hiraoka family.
