How to Attach Flag to Stick

 I have made flags for one of my trainers, Indy O'Connor, for several years but since their popularity seems to be increasing, I am now offering them in my product line.  As mentioned on the main motivators page, I do not have employees using specialized equipment cranking these things out.  I make the flags one at a time on my sewing machine set up on my kitchen table.  While sewing is not my forte - when I was in 4-H as a kid, I did the animal and craft stuff while my sisters did the sewing and baking - I can handle the basics.  I realize you may be able to find mass produced flags elsewhere at a better price but I offer flags so you can get everything at one place, consolidate shipping, etc.  

Construction and Options

Pull the whole flag through the rope loop and snug up the connection.

You are pulling the flag through the rope loop - not through the slit in the flag.

Find the opposite corner of flag and insert it through the rope loop.

Insert rope loop through slit in corner of flag


  • Flags are made with ripstop nylon fabric; edges are finished; attachment corner is reinforced with extra stitching
  • Large size is approximately 19 x 19", Small size is approximately 14 x 14"
  • Attach to the rope loop of my stick with a button hole - see pictures below for attachment method.

Color options:  Black only at this point

Price:    Large Flag  $14.00    Small Flag  $10.00

My flags can be used with either of my sticks but I would recommend the light weight stick -- it will be easier to make the quick back and forth motions to optimize the affect of the flag.  You may also order a shorter stick to use with the flag.  Click here for more information on  Sticks
