How to Attach a Flag to the Hood of a Car

by Corey Hill

Attaching a flag to the hood of your car is a great way to make sure that everyone around you knows how much you support something, whether it be a local sports team or your country of origin. Attaching a flag to your car's hood is easy and can be done within minutes.

1

Purchase a car flag with a suction cup attachment.

2

Order a custom-made car flag from a specialty vendor if you wish to display a flag that is not commonly available. Rates vary for the cost of this process, but an average custom-made car flag costs around ten dollars.

3

Ensure that the area where you intend to apply the suction cup is clean and dry. The suction cup will not work properly if the surface is dirty or wet.

4

Apply the suction cup to the desired area on the hood of the car.

5

Sit inside the driver seat to check that the flag does not hinder your ability to safely perform your duties as a motorist. Before hitting the road, drive around the block to check that the flag does not come loose.
