Specialized Survival Gear - The Flag Bandana

Flags and banners have been in use for a very long time. They can tell you if someone is friend or foe or simply be used to mark your location or the location of your camp. They can also be used as a signaling device in cases where help is needed. One of the best known distress calls is flying the American flag upside down.

Now carrying a full size flag can take up quite a bit of room but if you happen to find a flag bandana, grab it quick! A flag bandana is one of the specialized pieces of gear in my survival kit. It’s easily carried and can be used to signal for help or to mark your location. It has fifty stars and thirteen stripes that marks it as a true American flag. It's also a great way to designate your camp when flown in the upright position. When attached to your survival stick or hoisted on a paracord line, a flag bandana is sure to get someone’s attention.
