Just slap a label on the poles. Or quick stitch something small to the base end of the flag itself. Not hard to do and at least they're tagged for recovery if they do walk off. Capos should repeatedly (and heavily, early on) announce the difference if/when we see this influx of flags.

Loving these big flags at the Union game right now. What is the average size of one of our big flags? I'm thinking about making a custom flag, what would be the best website to do so? Most importantly where do you get those long black flag poles I see on almost every flag? thanks!

Thank you for these words, it means a lot after all the fighting we do to be allowed to use them.

Our flags are 8'x8', there's a thread gets somewhere with the site information! I'll try to find it after the celebration!

No problem. I'm just having trouble finding the poles. Those long black ones I've seen on ECS flags look like the best!

8x8 =16ft pole

larger get a 20'

Thank You! Do longer poles make it easier to waive the flags?

no shorterish the better, if you get a big flag on a small pole it will break, small pole on a large pole looks bad, an 8X8 fits perfect for a 16' pole

Please note, that if you want to use the poles we use for your flag, they need to come in with Tifo Crew instead of the front gates.

If we ordered a flag and pole, would we be able to leave all of it with you guys and let you know ahead of time what games to bring them in or just leave the pole and bring the flag?

Please keep the flag with you, if you do order a pole please make sure it is marked so it is identifiable for you, if you want to hold off on getting a pole we do have extra and get in contact with me and i will make sure a eatra goes in with crew.

I'm thinking of having the flag 7.5 feet tall and 7 feet wide. Wouldn't that make it easier to waive and clearer for people to see?

ahahahahahahahahha (sorry) a flag no matter what will always block someone view, someone will always complain or bitch, that should never stop you from supporting, get the flag you want and wave that bad boy.

i meant clearer to see the actual flag. When its long, it drags and the fabric is really wavy. It's hard to describe what i'm trying to say.. Lol But yah, obviously .5 feet wont make a difference from blocking someones view! haha

my main question was, would it be easier to waive? Like not get tangled up as much.

If you're asking if a square flag vs a rectangular flag will wave easier, The answer is yes. The smaller the flag the easier it will be to wave as well. Drag coefficients and what not.
