Here is the one I put up a couple of weeks ago, flies as long as the weather isnt too bad. Has two spotlights on a timer on.

What can I say I just dont think I could raise it at 0800 and lower it at sunset everyday, so i fly it 24/7.

From www.Flagguys.com...
Flag Myth: It is improper to fly the American flag in the rain: False. The Flag Code Title 4, Chapter 1, Section 6 specifically allows this practice if "an all weather flag is displayed." The code is silent on what an all weather flag is, but the intent sure sounds like it means a flag that is able to stand up to the conditions. Even very light weight flags can do so. They just will not do so as long as the better models.

I fly my flag 24/7 as well. Lights are used at night. The only time I take it down is when high winds (over 50 mph) are expected.

I fly my flags every day, 365 days a year. The American flag atop a telescoping 25' flag pole in the front yard with the Texas flag underneath. Both the American and Texas flags at my entry gates.
Those have been there since 9-11, well new flags but there have been some there ever since.

Mr.H hit it on the head. My flag is made of a nylon type material with sewn stars and individualy sewn stripes.
Even on base you just fly the smaller storm flag when it rains. On a Marine base there is always a flag flying from 0800 to sunset, unless there is a typhoon coming for you
