Note: Flaggenbuch, 1939, [neu39] shows this flag having blue serrations. This is a reported error.

The first Japanese penetration in Manchuria was through the railways of the region that after the Russian-Japanese war of 1905 fall in hands of Japan (Portsmouth Treaty). The South Manchurian Railway Co., a organization near under government control, was created in April 1908 and adopted this flag.

A white flag with a red logo in the center, reminding superimposed latin letters M and I. Or a winged I.

The South Manchuria Railway was once a politically important company.

What interests me for the moment is the logo, which seems to be composed of the initial 'M' and the silhouette of a rail.

I think in it is a stylized rail profile.

White with a black logo centered, consisting of a thick ring and 4 bars coming from the ring's upper half and poiting to the fly (or the right, in case this logo has to stay like this in both sides of the flag).

I guess this represents an winged (railroad) wheel. Not unlike the Soviet Union/Russia Transports Ministry emblem.
