With some attention and care, flags can be kept in top shape for years (or even decades!) without needing to be replaced. This allows for more versatility and will ensure that they stay upright even in windy conditions! It may take a bit more effort than simply hanging the flags but it's often worth it if you have a lot of wind in your area. Plus, you can also rotate your flags so they are always facing into the wind! How cool is that? And with its lightweight design, you don't have to stress (worry) about lugging around a heavy flagpole either. First off, (it's important to) check the pole periodically for any signs of damage and rot.
