flag pole holder

Need help on figuring out how to display flags on our rig. I see there are those 3 or 5 hole holders, but not sure how to get one and then go from there.

Kelly...I have one that John makes. It works great and looks good on the front of our polished Ambassador.

Me too, the five flag model. Sturdy and looks as nice as the Airstream. Highly recommended.

Lowe's poles (#06034) are 1''. Their brand is Blue Hawk. It has a blue, plastic handle that must be knocked off.

MrLongArm is my favorite. (#9272). It is US made in Missouri. Also 1''. Home Depot, Menards, TruValue Hwde, some independent hw stores. Has a nice, nylon plug in the end that is also 1'' so it protects the pole and the holder.

Both are aluminum, collapse to 6', extend to 12', are inexpensive and work really well.

I use hitch pin clips to attach the flag to the pole.

3x5 seems to be the most popular "standard size'' flag. I find that the cheap, thin flags fly the easiest, needing just a breeze to fly. They won't hold up to everyday use but work fine for our type of use.

Keep'em flyin'.

Flag pole holder

Hi we are participating in the VAC Wagon Wheel Caravan and attending our 1st International. I thought it would be nice to have a flag pole holder.

Thanks for the information thus far posted, but I am curious about the flag pole holder that John makes. I am sorry John to not know about you or your flag pole holder as I am a very infrequent poster.

Thanks much,

Susan

Hitch Pin

Just bend it open enough to clamp onto the pole. 2 per flag. They work great.

Hitch pin clip. It is made to be inserted through the hole in a hitch pin.

On my flag poles, I use them to hold the flag to the pole. Put the flag grommet onto the loop portion of the clip. Drill a hole in the pole near the top. Insert the clip until the crooked portion nests on the pole. It is now in place.

Put another clip on the bottom grommey, pull it down taunt, mark the location, drill the 2nd hole. Inset the bottom clip as the top one. Done.

I leave the top pin in place, pull the bottom one, collapse the pole to 6', roll the flag around the pole and put it in the bed of the truck.

Easy.



John

....and I just installed my new Sandlapper three hole flagpole on my Airstream. I have added an LED floodlight. John leaves enough room to bolt this into his aluminum holder. The floodlight uses very little juice and looks wonderful as it floods light upward onto my flags!

We use PVC but ours is rarely used because not many folks even look to see a flag when we are boondocking / unimproved campgrounds.

You may be surprised how much people notice the flags. We get complements all the time, people love them . . . and will ask you where they are if you are there for awhile and leave them down one day.

Doug is right, flags are always a topic of conversation . Folks are always stopping by, saying how much they love them. They are probably being noticed more than you think.

The events of 911 and most recently in Boston bring to the front how important OUR flags are.

Keep'em fly'n

John

USFlag.org: A website dedicated to the Flag of the United States of America - Flag Etiquette

When flown with flags of states, communities, or societies on separate flag poles which are of the same height and in a straight line, the flag of the United States is always placed in the position of honor - to its own right.
..The other flags may be smaller but none may be larger.
..No other flag ever should be placed above it.
..The flag of the United States is always the first flag raised and the last to be lowered.
When flown with the national banner of other countries, each flag must be displayed from a separate pole of the same height. Each flag should be the same size. They should be raised and lowered simultaneously. The flag of one nation may not be displayed above that of another nation.

When on display, the flag is accorded the place of honor, always positioned to its own right. Place it to the right of the speaker or staging area or sanctuary. Other flags should be to the left.



The flag of the United States of America should be at the center and at the highest point of the group when a number of flags of states, localities, or societies are grouped for display.
