  • If you do not want to drill into your fender, but your hood is made of non-steel material, such as aluminum, titanium or plastic, then the Diplomat-Z series might work for you.
  • If you do not want to drill anything into your car, but your hood is made of non-steel material, such as aluminum, titanium or plastic, then the Diplomat-Air might work for you.
  • If you do not want to drill anything and you have a modern Mercedes, then you could use the Diplomat-Star.

How many flagpoles do I need for my car?

Whether you need one or two car flags depends on your specific situation. But generally speaking, it’s good to be able to fly two flags. The following rules will fit most countries’ flag protocols:

Which flags should I fly?

If you drive on the right side of the road, the following general rules will apply.
If you drive on the left side of the road, then simply reverse left and right.
  • The host official (who owns the car) usually sits on the right-hand side of the back seat, so his country’s flag should be mounted on the front-right.
  • A guest official will usually sit on the left-hand side of the back seat, so his country’s flag should be mounted on the front-left.
  • If you aren’t planning on having any guests in your car, you could mount your country’s flag on both the front-right and front-left. Or if you have a personal office flag, you might want to use this on the front-left. For example, Presidential Flags could be mounted front-left.
