    1. Wow, look at the old dude in the crowd, right in the middle. His beard alone should establish his authority over all men present. His wisdom is of the ages.

    4. It’s supposed to be Japanese forces in China surrendering to the Nationalists.

      Revealing mistakes: the second flag in the right row, next to Australia’s, is Canada’s modern Maple Leaf flag. However, Canada’s flag in 1945 was the Red Ensign.

    5. imagine, if you will, spending days…nay! months! working on a piece of art that is nearly photographic in nature, only to mess one a simple thing as a countries flag.

      Well, I think that little factoid qualifies as an obscure fact, at least from an international standpoint. Most people wouldn’t think it’d take a country 96 years to come up with a flag, but there you have it.
      And since most movies/games set in WW1, WW2 or Korea have the Canadians prancing around with maple leafs sewn to their uniforms, I figured it was decided that for the sake of clarity, we’d just retcon it in there.

    8. What if it was an American Revolutionary War painting that had Britain’s flag including the red X, only added after the 1800 Act of Union with Ireland – would that also be an “obscure fact”? Sorry, if you’re going to do an historical painting, you’re going to have to do it without anachronisms.
