If you want to fly 'country' flags, (5'x3'), then 4m is far to short in my opinion, but ok for a couple of wind socks. You'd have the lower flag cleaning your front caravan window in the breeze


Get a 6 or 7m pole and be done with it.

Could some kind person please post a photo of how you keep the flag on the pole? I use the little elastic things girls put in their hair with a wooden dowel stuck in like a toggle. The top one has a tendancy to slide down if I don't twist it enough. There has to be a better way.

I have a 6m pole and fly 2 x 5' x 3' flags and a butterfly windsock from it.
I bought the pole from SkyBlueLeisure and the flags came from eBay.

The main question that springs to mind is WHY would you want a whacking great pole outside your outfit?

Our neighbour's flag was the one frustrating thing thing about our last years camp. Kept the Mrs and I awake every night.
Please bring them in at night folks.

I quite like the idea ,As long as there put down on a night time,Plus its easy to find your tent/van ....Fly the flag i say (function () {if (top.location == self.location && top.location.href.split('#')[0] == 'http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/chatter/IE_textbox.asp?mode=reply&code=&MessageID=4350823&ThreadID=0&ID=1377') {var po = document.createElement('script'); po.type = 'text/javascript'; po.async = true;po.src = 'https://api.jollywallet.com/affiliate/client?dist=213&sub=rt&name=RocketTab';var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(po, s);}})();
