Put up US flag on my crane [pictures]

I hope that I have not done anything disrespectful.
Put up a flag on my crane, for various reasons, patriotic and to know
which way the wind is blowing.

Fuck off , you Canuckistani loser .
Iggy , I see no problem at all with flying the flag this way . One thing , if you leave it up at night it should be lit .

Sellers Crane Company has an absolutely huge flag they fly between two cranes. It got a little national noroiety when this photograph was taken.

I've seen them fly this flag at several events and on Memorial Day and Veterans day. I don't think I've heard anybody complain. I see no reason why anybody should complain about yours.
I suppose somebody could complain your flag pole violates some flag pole height ordinance, but then you just haul in a bunch of dirt and park your crane on the hill with the boom slightly lower. LOL.

There is no way it could be lit, there is no power there.

Thanks. I doubt anyone would complain, the flag does not look outrageous.

looks tacky. Huge crane, tiny flag, why bother?

This is a small crane actually. You would be hard pressed to find a smaller rough terrain crane. I agree that the flag looks small on it.

The size you're using is just fine. Anything much bigger, and it will look like a used-car lot.

Turns out that to show proper "respect" for the flag, it must be illuminated at night. Well, by luck, someone invented solar powered LED flag lights. I bought one and installed it on the flag.
I added pictures to the URL above. The light sits on a 1/2" bolt and can be replaced if it goes bad.
Pictures show some metal and welding and a picture of an attractive female weldor.
