    And I just happened to have a perfect sized flag for it already. Although it came with a 6ft pole to hang off the roof, it's a 21ft pole and the flag is perfect size @ 4x6

    love it, just thought I'd share since I've always wanted a flag flying

    Only time I cared about the Canadian flag is when I wore it as a cape during a legend-dairy Canada day pub crawl.

    That flag is way too big for a six-foot pole.

    Never really understood people wanting to fly country flags at their house.

    Then again, flags do nothing for me.

    yup. but it wasn't a straight pole to stick in the ground., it was one of those with an angle mount that people nail on to the side of their roof.

    This neighborhood is different. it's hard to explain. there's an HOA here that is really REALLY particular. there is no grass at any house for miles (because in phoenix...well, it's fucking hot and lots of people have desert landscape like you see in the pic)

    funny thing about the flag. there is a mercedes, a lexus, a cadillac dealers about 1/2 mile from here on the main road (Bell Road). They all have ENORMOUS flags. I can see 4 of them from my house. and it somehow became a 'thing' here. I can see two other houses with flags from my front yard (about 4 houses to camera right of the one in the pic and one behind me on my street). Driving through my neighborhood I'd say one out of every 10 houses has a flag. and i mean a flag like mine, on a 21ft pole. it's unreal how many people have them here.

    I wouldn't have dug a hole and put a flag pole in. although i wish it was newer because my pole is old and kind of shitty. At my old place I put it out on certain holidays. figured I might as well fly it here all the time since so many other people do

    Do you take it down at dusk and fold it properly and then put it back up in the morning?

    fuck no. neither does anyone else around here. i looked before putting it up too, had they taken them down at night I'd not have put it up. IN fact, I'm going to get a light that straps to the pole that has a solar panel to light it up at night.

    this is the reason i won't take it down and put it up every day. it's a bitch tying it up properly

    The only logical conclusion if you don't fly the flag is you're communist Muslim bastard. And you're not welcome around these parts.

    I still see Australia as a Brittish prison colony. I envision a bunch of Charlie Bronsun's running around naked, covered in berry smears fucking tazmanian devil's in the ass inside the pouches of a kangaroo riding a duck-billed platypus.

    Little island? It's the same flight time from LA to NYC as it is from Perth to Melbourne.
