The flag does get a bit in the way when I'm mounting/dismounting the bike. I did catch it with my boot a few times, and I'm fairly certain, I would have broken it if not for the pivot bolt attached to angle bracket. So installing it directly into the fender (cutting m8-1.25 thread) is probably not a good idea. Due to toothed washers, flag poll stays upright, but still has some give if I bump it hard enough. It doesn't move even while on highway or riding over potholes.
