    I have six flags, and have seen numerous others, and have never seen a corner cut out as yours is. This is a mystery to me. Maybe there was a shrine stamp in this area and it was cut out before it was captured as not to dishonor the flag. Just a guess.

    I'll echo stepback-- I only have one but have seen others and don't recall cut corners.
