The red disc of the flag image from Flaggenbuch 1925 is too large. My source are Japanese flag books from 1910 and 1995 which show the disc size is 3/5 of length and the Customs Flag is still in use now in Japan.The white stands for sky, blue for sea and the red disc symbolizes the sun rising from the horizon.
Nozomi Kariyasu, 24 October 1999

The flag was adopted 3 August 1892 and is still in use
Nozomi Kariyasu, 22 February 2000

The 7th customs flag was adopted on 3 August 1892 which is diagonally divided white over blue with red disc in the center. Originally designed for ensign but now hoisted at customs office buildings as well. The official gazette says the flag proportion is 2 by 3 and the disc diameter is 2/3 of the width. The white stands for sky, blue for sea and red for rising sun from the sea. The flag is still in use.
