1 Claim.‘ (Cl. 116-173)
This invention relates to an improved holder
for ?ags and banners, and one of its objects is
to provide a holder by means of which a flag may
be stiffened at one end so that it will drape neatly
from its support.
Another object of the invention is to provide
a flag holder which will fully display the entire
surface area of the ?ag.
With the above and other objects in view the
invention consists in certain new and useful com- ,
clamped to the bar by means of the screws [3,
which are extended through end portions of the
bar and adjacent portions of the flag and U
shaped strip, and are secured in place by cap
nuts l4, threaded 0n the ends of the screws.
In Fig. 4 I show the manner in which this
clamping action is developed, so that the flag
will not slip out of its retaining channel, and
when draped will present the most attractive
binations, constructions and arrangements of
In Fig. 3 I show the use of the improved ?ag
