Diver Down Flag
Two sizes, for float and boat
Legal size diver down flags available in two sizes, for float 13.5" x 12" and for boat 24" x 20".
- Stitched-in fiberglass stiffner. Better than the conventional wire stiffner which gets entangled with other gear in your equipment bag, bends and requires constant straightening, and causes the grommets to rip out of the flag material rendering the flag illegal and unusable.
- High quality nylon construction.
- Stainless steel grommets.
- Stitched on white stripe. Will not fade and rub off like a painted on stripe.
- Boat size flag accepst the cheapest and most readily available flag pole; a 1/2" white PVC pipe
- Float size flag accepts a 1/4" diameter flag pole. Home Depot sells a 48" tall driveway marker for $2 with the perfect size fiberglass pole for the flag.
* Flag pole not included.
