Raising the New Zealand flag at our home was not quite so clear cut as we had hoped. Attaching the base of our telescopic flagpole to the support post of the wooden fence was frowned upon, so we had to remove it. The suggestion was made to simply add an extra post in the yard. This was finally achieved last week, and the cement holding it in place now deemed hard enough to support the weight of the flag pole. The brackets were screwed in place, and the telescopic flagpole was put in the bracket.
