Burgee on A-frame

What's the neatest way of fixing a burgee to the A-frame? I think I would like a purpose made stainless steel staff fixed to the top of the A-frame.

Just wondered if there were any other good ideas.

Why not? The cable ties/string/tape will be new too.

Can't have you showing the rest of us up.

You will be pleased to hear that the burgee in question is now cable tied to the A-frame. Job done.

BAILING WIRES GOOD BUT. CHEWED UP CHEWING GUM IS BEST, BEST IF YOUVE BEEN EATING PEANUTS JUST BEFORE.
