I am trying to figure out how to make a flagpole to mount on my truck and trailer that will withstand highway speeds. It needs to be fairly stiff, and be able to hold the 3' X 5' flag. Not sure what to use for the pole part that would not break. The baseplate I have already figured out but the pole material I am not sure of. This is for a pole for driving missions for the Patriot Guard Riders.
I thought 1" conduit. But not sure if it will bend and break. I do not want the flags to end up on the ground somewhere.
