Default Flag mounting

Suggestions for mounting a flag (prefer relatively easy on/off) for my '06, no luggage rack, back rest, etc? Just a standard 2-up seat/fender, thanks.

I fly a small 4 X 6 US flag vertically from the license plate bracket. The stick is wedged in place and zip tied. Its about 1-inch off center, but close enough for me.

Very limited options that way my friend.. They do make a license plate flag mount (drag specialties carries it)

Nothing is going to be easy on or off without a backrest/luggage rack.

Thanks, that's what I thought, wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything. I was thinking of something on the smaller size for the flag, I have the laydown plate holder on the bike (came with it).

Mostly for parades, slow speed riding. I'll monkey around & see what I can come up with, something to do now that the colder temps are here.

I've been thinking about getting a little flag pole for a 6"x9" flag and having it welded to a screw that will fit the two-up seat mount hole.
