dive flag holder/pole

Any good dive flag holders that can be flipped down when not in use?

I used to use a fishing rod holder than was flip down able, then had the flag on a pole that was placed in said holder when required. Now have a nice piece of stainless attached that does the same job.

Out of curiosity, if you were removing the pole, why would the holder need to flip down?

painter/decoraters aluminium or aloominum telescopic extention poles make good flag or nav light poles,
couple of nylon clips fastened to the transom and can be unclipped or clipped on .

I use a peice of 3/4" schedule 80 PVC as a flag pole. It fits into a piece of ABS tube about 1-1/4" ID I bolted onto the edge of my seat. The pole just lies alongside the tube when not in use.

No reason, just the bracket it came with allowed it to.

I love this one although its not flip down. They make it with a single pennant or a double. I keep the colors going then add the dive flag when necessary.

These guys do amazing work.

We have just knocked one up out of a stainless antenna mount and tube, it can be folded down when not in use or if we want to put up/take down the flag. Will get a pic sometime.

I bought a SS flagpole from ebay and then mounted a ss flagstaff mount on the a frame.
I take the pole off except when diving by having both drilled to take a SS R clip.
The flag is quite big so don't want to leave up when moving fast.
I just throw the pole and flag down the side of the console when not needed

I just zip-tied a couple of plastic d-rings to my VHF Antenna (it's a 5' glass jobbie, mounted to the top of my arch). Pop a couple of small snap clips of your choosing through the grommets on the flag and you're all set.
