Here's my vote for Rob of Robandzoe ,the best 5 flag holder made. Heavy duty Aluminum that will polish up nicely. Quality that surpasses the price. If anyhing they are under priced.

OM, I can't believe some one would do such a thing...I'm sure it wasn't anybody associated with the International unless it was some teenagers out for a prank as you said. Wasn't the International held on the University campus or close to it? I bet one of the fraternities did it as an initiation stunt or something.

Good luck in getting them back.

I use 3x5 flags. They look fine and I like the larger flags. Mounting them on the 12' poles works fine and they don't interfere with the view from the front window. Here is what they look like...

Just got our Pole Ease 'three holer' flag pole mount today. It was easy to mount, but I had to open up the holes slightly with a small drum sander to accommodate the expandable alum roller paint poles I picked up at Lowes (about $15 each).

The poles had blue plastic handles that were easy to remover...only PITA were those darn sticky labels wrapped around em'... I used a heat gun and some mineral spirits to get rid of the glue.

We've got a selection of 3x5 flags to mount up there. We'll be 'flying high' over at Half Moon Bay State Beach late next week...looking for some cool ocean breezes!

I am thinking about just ordering a 5 pole Pole Ease and starting with 3 flags. The extra two holes can be filled later. Have the U.S. flag in the center and maybe our state flag, but not sure what to use as the third. Maybe just start with the U.S. flag in the second hole and the state flag in the fourth. We are members of the WBCCI, but I am not sure if we are allowed to fly the WBCCI flag if neither is an officer.

Any suggestions. I could always include something along the Disney line for the third or even a fourth.

No worries, you can flag the WBCCI club flag, you do not need to be an officer.

Just just ordered a 5 pole holder from Rob with the intention of starting off with 3 flags like Minnie. US Flag, and a couple state flags that were home to us. I looked for WBCCI flags on the web and surprised (but not really) that WBCCI on-line store doesn't have them listed. Someone tell me the deal. Are there just WBCCI flags and also WBCCI unit flags? If so, where does one look to see what is available.

One other question regarding poles. The Pole Ease poles are $35 each and listed as heavy duty. Lowes painter poles at about $15 each. These most likely are lighter duty poles. Has anyone compared to two? Menards has the stainless steel C-clamps if anyone is looking for them. I measured the diameter of the electric jack this morning and it looks lilke a 2 1/4 clamp will work.

Here is my rig with the GM flag. Just make sure you are careful to maintain respect/etiquette when flying National and State flags. All others should be flown in the "inferior" positions". On an arched 3 pole, It goes center, left, right as viewed from the front.

After the National and State flags, anything goes! I have a whole locker full of flags on various themes! All of m flags are 3X5 except for the Airstream company flag which is smaller.

I was thinking the same thing about poles. $20 difference in price plus shipping is a lot when you order 3 or more poles...it adds up.
