Yes, you definitely want the flag pole to be longer than the flag lol

2017-07-24 14:16:35 UTC  

yeah so like 5 foot?

2017-07-24 14:16:38 UTC  

A 3 foot axe handle with a solid grip, like you would use for a baseball bat will be ideal

2017-07-24 14:16:52 UTC  

but 3 foot and a 3foot tall flag....

2017-07-24 14:16:56 UTC  

Yes, 5 or 6 ft

2017-07-24 14:17:13 UTC  

You can wave it above you r head or wield as needed

2017-07-24 14:17:26 UTC  

At you trying to impale people?

2017-07-24 14:17:27 UTC  

You can get them where they come in two pieces that connect together for easier transport too

2017-07-24 14:17:33 UTC  

@Tyrone what? with the flag coming down to my hand?

2017-07-24 14:18:05 UTC  

Anything longer is too long to effectively bludgeon someone with

2017-07-24 14:18:09 UTC  

flags are 3 feet tall....

2017-07-24 14:19:08 UTC  

I think at cville 1.0, 8 ft poles were used

2017-07-24 14:19:42 UTC  

You can screw an extension on securely. Or better yet screw 2 of them together that way when some else doesn't have an axe handle you can hook them up.

2017-07-24 14:20:49 UTC  

You don't want something like a broom or dowel rod you only are going to get 3-6 whacks to something solid before it breaks

2017-07-24 14:21:47 UTC  

I'm just being practical. Most of these are for purposes other than looking good in pictures.

2017-07-24 14:21:48 UTC  

Just doublechecked the info from cville 1.0 - 8 foot poles w/ 3x5 flags was recommended

2017-07-24 14:22:06 UTC  
2017-07-24 14:22:11 UTC  

Np

2017-07-24 14:22:24 UTC  

Cville 1.0 wasn't expecting opposition.

2017-07-24 14:22:26 UTC  

i know they have wooden ones that screw into two pieces

2017-07-24 14:22:58 UTC  

And the flag bearers behind the speakers are different than most in the crowd.

2017-07-24 14:23:09 UTC  

Impaling people is always the best option tbh

2017-07-24 14:23:57 UTC  

There are some really nice hardwood poles that are two piece, but also cheaper ones that won't be very useful to double as spears lol

2017-07-24 14:24:11 UTC  

Agreed!!! @Kurt

2017-07-24 14:25:02 UTC  

thnking about this

2017-07-24 14:25:13 UTC  

Lack of impaling people entering Europe who weren't wanted is what got them into the current mess they are in.

2017-07-24 14:26:05 UTC  

There you go 6 bucks

2017-07-24 14:26:37 UTC  

you can even put your own spike on the top of it

2017-07-24 14:28:04 UTC  

I'm telling you. You want something designed for longitudinal stress. There whacks and that thing is breaking

2017-07-24 14:28:41 UTC  

That was the standard size recommend for everyone there, not just the flag bearers behind the speakers.

2017-07-24 14:29:42 UTC  

Put a 6-8 inch double threaded screw into 2 3 ft axe handles. It shit gets real unscrew the bottom and go to town. The flag can get rolled up in the top where it was attached.

2017-07-24 14:29:42 UTC  

But yeah, if you want to use it as a club, you'll want something shorter lol

2017-07-24 14:30:33 UTC  

In a pinch you hand someone your flag and maybe they get blood on it.

2017-07-24 14:33:26 UTC  

There you go @Tyrone

2017-07-24 14:34:24 UTC  

That might be acceptable.

2017-07-24 14:34:54 UTC  

I would still want it to unscrew into two pieces unless I was horse mounted

2017-07-24 14:35:34 UTC  

@Eli Mosley What's the official policy on horses?
Are they allowed in the park?
