Jerry Bransford Just a pair of zip ties wrapped double works great.

Thanks for the reply.
Do you just use zip ties? I was thinking of zip ties and small hose clamps to add some redundancy.

geiman I've flow small flags from the CB antenna as well without issue. Occasionally, for parades and such, I'll fly a larger flag from a flag pole I made from some galvanized pipe I painted black. I used a floor plate bolted to the spare tire carrier, so the pole screws on and off easily. Eventually I'm going to fab up something nicer, but for the time being it's a cheap and quick way to fly a flag nicely.

That is one good looking Jeep Jerry! I expected nothing less from you though. I didn't realize the measurements that the OP had posted. Keep 'em flying boys!

Big Sarge Yeah probably would not be a good idea to fly it from the antenna. Also keep in mind the protocols of flying a flag... I'm in the military and sometimes I see people meaning well by flying a flag, but do so in a manner that just drives me up a wall.
