Selecting the correct base for Teardrop Banners, Bow Banners & Rectangle Flags is important to ensure you can use them anywhere you want. All of our bases fit on all of our flag poles, so you can purchase multiple bases to allow you to use your flags at any event or location.
The most popular base is the Ground Spike which allows you to stand the flag up on soft surfaces, such as grass or dirt areas, garden beds & sand at the beach.
The second most popular stand is our Folding Cross Base with Water Bag. This stand allows you to use your flags on hard surfaces, such as indoors on carpet or outdoors on concrete. We find this model to be very easy to transport as you can simply drain the Water Bag once you have finished displaying the flag. The water bag is heavy duty and when filled with water it weighs 11 kgs - so it provides great stability for the flags in most conditions. As the water bag is so heavy when filled it is important that it is not dropped, as the impact could split the bag open.
The third option is our Wall Brackets. This option is perfect if you have a set location at the front of your store or on a fence that you will be putting your flags out on each day. These brackets are designed to be permanently screw fixed to a wall or fence and allow you to simply take the flag on and off each day. There are two options available, our 0 degree bracket allows the flag to sit straight up, the 30 degree option allows the flag to point out on an angle. The size of the base plate on the wall brackets is 100mm x 100mm with hole centres 70mm apart.
The fourth option is our U-Shaped Car Base. This is a very popular option for car yards and real estate agents. This base is locked in place by a front or rear car wheel.
The fifth option is our Heavy Duty Square Base (10kg). This is an alternative to our Cross Base with Water Bag that is heavy and doesn’t require a water bag. It provides a clean flat base that can minimise tripping hazards in confined spaces however it is not as portable due to the weight of the base.
The last option is our Vertical Floor Bracket. This one allows you to install it permanently to the ground somewhere that you would usually use a Cross Base with Water Bag or Ground Spike.
If you need to order some extra bases to use with your existing Easy Signs poles, you can purchase these items separately at Flag Poles & Bases.
