I am wanting to fly the flag behind my Jeep during outings and drives with my local Jeep groups. What is a good pole to place into the receiver that can withstand the wind and driving on the highway and where have you bought them from?

In the trailer hitch, only seen and tried on from Steinjager and its sucked. Poor quality and fit. I have a flag pole holder that fits in the hitch and rigged a PVC pie and works well at 75mph.

Now I just a got a new setup form truckflagpole.com and its fits using the spare tire lugs. Reviews I have seen around were great.

All the reviews I read online said that most will not hold up to highway speeds so i guess a trip to the hardware store ans making my own from PVC pipe is the answer

Not truckflagpoles.com
Are the flag poles highway safe?
Our flag pole designs are highway tested in a controlled environment up to 85mph. Caution should still be used in high winds, rain or conjested areas. Always refer to local laws and regulations.

Just the holder and the one i have. Need a 2” flag pole which is near impossible to find. Why I used PVC.
Think the OP wants both
That page shows some different poles too. Though, I see several poles which are rated only up to 35-40 mph. I guess intended for old people or parades. :D


Again, intended to just be a starting point for the OP.

You should NEVER display Old Glory in a way that it could become dirty. And never on the rear of a vehicle.
Please stop flying American flags on your Jeeps. It's actually disrespectful, not at all patriotic.
In many states it's illegal because it blocks visibility.

Fly your flags at home and follow the established US Flag Code if you want to display your patriotism.

I ordered my double flag holder from a local shop. Along with an American Flag and MIA/POW Flag for a little over $200. The poles are aluminum and I wrapped duct tape around 1/2" aluminum conduit and inserted them into the flap poles for more strength. I've only drove about 55 mph, but they do seem to be holding up well. I have not had them on without the top on though, so the flags are not getting a lot of wind.

I do not consider fly the Flag behind a vehicle disrespectful. I just volunteered at "Heroes on the Dunes". This was for veterans at Silver Lake Sand Dunes. I could not count the amount of American Flags being flown on all the vehicles. The veterans thought it was great. If the ones that fought for our Flag find it great, then that's what matters. I have a double flag holder and I do, and will continue to fly the American Flag and MIA/POW Flag.

When this topic comes up, I'm always reminded of a Vet that spoke to us one Veteran's Day. He had recently been back to Normandy (the last time he was there, it was for war) and said he saw more US flags flying there than he does at home. He said, "People, please fly our flag. I don't care if it is raining, or dark, fly our flag!"
I've tried to keep one flying at the house for years, even prior to hearing him speak. I know all about the flag code, but his words I will never forget.

I can't remember not fly a Flag at my home. I do have a solar powered light on it. Some times it lasts all night, some times not. But to me, flying the Flag is more important then not flying it because my light went out.

When I see videos or read about people in this Country getting offended about our Flag, it just pisses me off to no end.

Unfortunately it's not up to anyone alive today to change or make excuses to disregard the flag code that came from our founding fathers. Even our veteran heroes.

It pisses me off to no end when people show great disrespect to the American Flag, even with the excuse of being simply naïve. If you want to fly an American Flag, take the time to learn about it first.


One should never, ever, let darkness fall upon the American Flag. One needs to take the flag down at sunset, or artificially illuminate it.


People who disrespect the American Flag this way, rank right up there with those who burn the flag, or use it as toilet paper, even as a 1st Amendment protest.

Oh please. Yes its a symbol and I believe in being respectful but its a piece of material.
Mine hangs 24hrs a day on my house and no artificial light. Yes its touched the ground, God or bid.... I fly it on the rear of Jeep.
But would never fly another flag at same height though.
Heard similar things as someone said from Veterans. Fly it, wear it, whatever you want to have pride!

Just curious what is it like driving (I assume topless) down the highway at 70-80 mph with a huge-ass flag flying?

That's gotta be - interesting?

I don't recall ever hearing this theory before! People change laws all the time and since the flag code has only been law since 1942 it's not like anyone is defiling a founding fathers grave to do it.

Are you dissing the flag code just because a veteran said it was "okay" to desecrate it?
Or are you dissing the flag code just because you really enjoy draping it all over your Jeep and getting it dirty? Do you have flag toilet paper at home too?

No, actually I'm mocking your take on laws, and the flag code. I don't "diss" the flag
