Bag Flags

To better identify one’s luggage

Bag Flags are a pair of robust fittings to be securely mounted on opposite corners of a suitcase. Pressing a button on a small remote, causes a ten inch, brightly colored, plastic flag to spring-unfold from each, unless it is pressed against the floor, a carousel or another bag.

The unfurled flags are themselves also flexible and durable and can be easily folded back into their compartments. Placing this fixture on the top of one’s car also aids in finding the vehicle later in a large parking lot.

       I'd settle for one flag, so long as it waves after it unfurls.

       and if your luggage finds itself in Abu Dhabi when you are at Luton airport, the flag will fly at half-mast.

       Gimme white flags. My bag surrenders. I can imagine the "BANG" flag isn't at all popular these days.

       Which came first: the bag flags or the lie tie? [+]

       With such technology that is required I envision many airport security luggage searches in your future.   

       I also envision 5 years in the future a baggage carousel filled with waving flags. +
