I've been known to rock the Jolly Roger from time to time. I used some allthread, and nuted each end, ran it through existing holes in my tower and walla. Sorry no pics.

Do you want this to be a permanent type of fixture?? I recently bought some tower clamps from http://www.proflighttowers.com/ that I was originally going to use to make my bimini...I ordered four, but only needed two, so what I did was order some 1" bimini hardware(1 end cap and 1 Jaw slide), and got a piece of 3/4" conduit, placed the fittings on the conduit and screwed the bent conduit to my tower clamps...it's easy to remove, and most important (to me at least) not permanent. The clamps ran about $45 a piece, so you may not want to spend that kind of cash for a flag mount, but I think it looks good... I will post pics later.

Oops...nevermind Wade...I just took a look at your profile pic and realized you have the Illusion tower...the clamps I got from proflighttowers I don't think will work for you. sorry

Put 2 zipties around the tower as far apart as the flag is wide, and put another set of zipties through that set and through the flag and there you go. It will not damage anything and will come off if you need it to. You can also modify this technique by using something that you can undo so that you can take the flag off. It does not look bad either if you use the right color ziptie.
