re flags,

Recently came back from a trip with 16 vehicles - all had flags, but the one I was *really* impressed with, was mounted to the roof rack (front centre), rather than bull bar, and more importantly, had three flags of different colors/sizes rather than just the single 'tiny' orange fella often going around.

I'll be adding more 'sail' to mine for next time ;-)

Good advice all of you - particularly Ivan with the flag mounted on the roof rack - high as you can go is the best. For those 'short' people on the other side of the dune. LOL
