Flag pole holder

Well it took a few dollars in supplies but in the end, the project turnt out pretty good. All I used was a 2' piece of 1.25" PVC pipe with a cap on one end. 4 hose clamps and a Flag Pole Buddy from Camping World. Click image for larger version

Feel free to steal away. I didn't want to violate the airstream anyway so this was a quick and easy option. The pole is telescoping. I just added this solar powered light so I can leave the flag up all night. Click image for larger version

Fantastic - nice touch too on the lighting for night-time. I often see the Flag displayed at night without proper illumination. I'm a real stickler for the Flag Code.

Me too. Been in the Air Force for 19 years. I display our colors with pride and in accordance with proper flag protocols.
