Position the bracket against the house and mark the screw holes with a pencil; then predrill the holes using a drill bit suited to your house's sheathing.

For brick, use a masonry bit, and drill holes into the brick, not the mortar.

Place a dab of caulking in each hole to keep water out, then attach the bracket with 1 1/4-inch stainless-steel screws (replace the screws that came with the bracket if they're too short). If your house is brick, insert plastic or stainless-steel anchors before screwing the bracket into place.

Slide the flagpole firmly into the bracket.

You can also hang a flag vertically—stars on the upper left—from a window, roof eaves, or structural overhang. No matter how you hang it, buy a flag made of durable, all-weather material, and fly it at night only if it's illuminated.
