Having a flag on your balcony is great, but there’s little point if the flag keeps getting twisted around the pole. Luckily, there are plenty of options to stop this from happening.

In this story, we’ll cover how to keep your flag from wrapping around a pole.

Your flag keeps getting twisted around the pole because of the wind.

Why do Flags Wrap Around Poles?

DIY flag weights

If the weights don’t have clips, you could simply sew them in place. The stronger the wind, the heavier weights you’ll need.

Spinning flag pole

It consists of spinning brackets, which you slide over the pole. As such, it’s a cheaper and easier solution.
