Just in case you come north of the border into Canada, you should remember that the Canadian flag goes in the middle, and the US flag in the second position, just so you don't get fragged by a bunch of enraged Canucks.


"In a line of three flags, the National Flag of Canada should be in the centre. The other two flags should, in alphabetical order, be placed to the left and right of the National Flag respectively, from the point of view of the observer facing the three flagpoles/masts (Figure 13)."


Of course when we Canadians are in the US, we fly the Stars and Stripes in the centre and the Canadian flag on the left, as you face the front of the trailer. The flag on the right is usually the unit flag or such other flag as desired. We also spell centre differently.

I fly five

I make 3 and 5 and am working on a 7 (for my unit and my Nascar flag)....

3 for $50 and 5 for $65.... they are heavy duty welded (not riveted) aluminum holders - for poles, I use 6-12 foot painter poles from Lowe's for $12.99 each... plus shipping... Enjoy..

Thanks again,
No one answered your question. Yes, if it's not lit it should be lowered at dusk and can be raised again at dawn.
I'll repost this helpful link: USFlag.org: A website dedicated to the Flag of the United States of America - Flag Etiquette

Leave them up

I usually leave them up, all, except for the US, where I take it down at dark - unless I have a light on it.

Good reminder! Leon and I purchased a high quality Canadian flag at the same time we purchased our American flag a few years back. We are going to the 2008 R1R this August in PEI and will be proudly displaying the Canadian flag in the center of our five place flag holder. We treat both flags with respect and honor - as they should be treated: Two great countries, sharing a border and friendship.

BTW, my husband makes flag lights for folks in our Unit. Nearly everyone's display is well lit at night.

I have the Pole Ease setup and like it fine. To light my flags at night, I went to Lowes and bought a 12 volt landscape spot light and a magnet. I went to Wal-mart and purchased a vehicle-side (female) 7-way trailer light connector. I wired the light to the battery and ground lead in the connector, and simply plug the trailer male into it, and use the onboard batteries/invertor to power the light. The magnet holds the light on the trailer tongue, directly under the flags. The light is a 15 watt spot fixture, so most of it shines straight up, and not at the neighbors.

And the Maple Leaf is presented in an upright fashion, as all Atlanta Braves fans and United States Marines (I am both) now know.

I still blame this gaff for our loss in the 1992 World Series.

Flag Holder Follow-Up and Another Question...

Hello All,

Just as a follow-up, here is a picture of the 5 hole holder I fabricated. I did not have the ability to weld, so I made the piece with the lower holes in it seperately, and used stainless steel screws to attach the two pieces. I attached the holder to the jack with 2 inch stainless steel muffler clamps as well.

Sorry about the rusty bottles. I am trying to milk the old propane out of them, before I do the upgrade/OPD conversion.

Thanks to everyone for your suggestions. I purchased one 12 foot aluminum telescoping painters extension handle at the local building supply place (HD) to use to make sure I had the correct hole size.

The new mast, with the flag on it looks good, but I think something needs to be done with the very top of the mast, above the flag, where the threads are located. has anyone come up with a good Ball or "Truck" idea to cap off the top of the paint extension handle/ flagpole???

If I don't hear anything in the next few days, I'll try to hit the hobby stores, and find a 3 inch plastic or wooden ball and see what I can do.

Thanks agin for the help!!!

Regards,

I thought I had seen something like that once before, but haven't seen them since.

Also, I have read that some get an extra sewer hose tube and mount next to the sewer hose tube with it turned in the reverse direction (open side facing curb side of Airstream) to avoid confusion, but I would be afraid that dirt, dust, mud, etc. would enter the screw cap's vent holes and soil the flags and flag poles. I'll have to search the on-line store again when I add a flag holder for a storage container.

yep, some use an extra poop tube, which is less expensive and easier to mount.

the rectangular flag box is large enough to hold rugs, brooms, door mats, some folding chairs and even a folding table...

i carry all sorts of stuff in them, that is too large for the valterra tube...

cheers

Unhappy I don't have to worry about this for awhile...

All six of my flags were stolen at the WBCCI Bozeman International Rally!

US, Canada, Colorado, DenCO Unit, Past Unit President & Vintage Airstream Club (the old one). Total loss of about $250-300 to me ~ they are all replaceable...except the blue w/yellow VAC flag unless anybody has one they would like to sell to me.

I'm sure it was just a prank...at least a dozen others were stolen too throughout the rally site - "they" also switched poles between trailers. We ended up with old damaged poles instead of our new ones we just bought...and there were spares littering the rally site and the flag covers many of the officers use. Made me mad, to say the least! Doubt they will be recovered...but we did file a police report and our fingers are crossed.
