    Sounds to me like you want a ceremonial pole, but one that has the sharp pointy base. I'm sure the more flag terminology savvy have the correct terminology.

    If not when I get home to my stack of flag store catalogs ill look it up. Of course if you are into more capture the flag rather than reenactment, how much abuse is the pole going to take from rough play?

    What I was thinking of is listed in the Annin catalog in their military products section as a Guidon Staff.

    "8' or 9' hardwood jointed staff with light ash finish , 7" or 8.5" army spear (top ornament) and pointed bottom ferrule. (For sticking into the ground)

    I think this would be more for re-enactment and not for casual CtF, particularly if rough abuse of the staff is expected. These sets in their cheapest configuration sell for about $200 - in a 2008 catalog.

    Depending on the amount of misuse expected, you
    May be better off trying to home brew something.

    if it's going to be used in a game I would say the lighter the better. Go aluminum and paint it to look old.
