Many different ways to attach flags, and many poles or bases available. If you are going to match them, a picture or identification wording would be helpful.
Most vendors carry them, or a simple fix is zip-tie, or crimp a piece of copper tubing to fabricate a holder base.. kb

I used to use large rubber bands to hold it to the end of the bumper when at shows.

If you just need soemthing temp, you can use two wire ties on each flag pole.

I've been looking for one for the last three years almost, it was on the car years ago but when I bought it the clamp was gone. I'd like to replace it with the exact same thing so I'm glad this topic came up and here I thought I was the only weird one out there looking for something like this......LOL. I'll try and add a picture so you can sorta see what style I'm looking for. Nope it wont load for me. Grrrr....
I remember when the flag was pulled out the clamp stayed on the bumper, does that sound correct? Also noticed the position of the clamp in comparison to the bumper bracket, there in two different spots. And the flag pole itself is all on the front side of the bumper, not behind it.
Thanks for any help,

If you don't want to spend money, a 308 or 30-30 rifle shell casing zip-tied to each end of each bumper works well.

I checked out that video. It was a simple and practical solution.

Hey Tim,
My computer is acting up so I can't send regular emails and I'll have to take the PC in for some troubleshooting which means I'll be without it for probably a few weeks I'm guessing. But send me the additional pictures of your holders anyways and I'll get back with you it ASAP.
Thanks,

I purchased from the A vendors, but I think Bahm solution is practical and cost effective.

Interesting question, but do you run the 50 state flags or 48? I always thought the 48's would look more period correct.
