  3. How to fly your colors?

    If for display and not for height try a ground spike (angle iron) and tube fabricated by local welder. Add a pair of small foot tabs to help set the spike in the soil. Ikea had some nice one piece curtain rod with end caps at 7- 8' or try a lumber yard for closet poles of suitable diameter and length for your flag I used the curtain rod painted black and gold leafed the finial, brass eye screws attach the 3x5 roger.
