Ryukyu :D by Iopichio Ryukyu :D by Iopichio
Sakura representing Ryūkyū :D

In Japanese history, there have been four peoples populating Japan.
In Honshu, Shikoku & Kyushu the Japanese empire developed.
In Hokkaido, the Ainu people lived and were conquered eventually by Japan.
At some point the Mongols invaded and took over large areas of the north, but eventually those clans became part of teh Japanese empire.

In Okinawa and the islands South of it existed the Ryukyu empire.
It survived Japanese expansionism until the 19th century and had quite a central role in the maritime history of medieval Asia, despite its small size.

The flag is so freakishly awesome i just had to have someone wear it like this :D
