Hi, a proper job would be to use a wooden Staff (flag pole) fixed to the transome using a flag pole socket that is normally made from stainless steel.

The flag you would fly would be an Ensign

I use a dive flag fairly often. It is zip tied onto a PVC pipe and has a nice spot to rest on the floor in the port side against the transom. Then I tie it in place with a thin cord. NEVER up when underway, instead it is stored on the port side floor board. The flag was originally setup for my kayak.

Fishing rod holders that can be mounted at a slight angle to straighten the transom angle out worth great. As said above a wooden dowel works great since it will float, or just glue/cap the PVC ends off of some scrap 3/4" PVC pipe.

Ordered the Ensign yesterday. Was going to fix a bit of stainless tube to the transom and drop the pole in it.

Was just curious if others had done similar.

Yep, I reckon that would work well

The poles are normally teak, like this one:

Teak Wood Boat Flag Pole Staff 16mm x 500mm | eBay

But you can use whatever you like really.

You could also fly a ribnet flag
