Helpful in replacing Boy Scouts.

Basically a pair of automatons that serve the singular function of folding flags, in any one of a number of desired methods (square, rectangular, tri-fold). Come complete with replacable white gloves and a never-flinching gaze.

Can be attached to automatic flag pole systems (see link), or simply place one corner of the flag in each hand on the device. Ratchet clamps as hands keep everything in place.

They slide towards one another on tracks.
