Flagger Instruction

Down (Downward)

This is the movement that everyone can do right away.

Pretend you are whipping a masochist who requested it

My palms are facing downward the whole time
The flags are moving downward toward the ground
The flags create an invisible figure 8
The flag tip draws a horizontal figure 8
I do not need to flip my wrist very much (slight turn, maybe)
My elbow stays near my stomach and I “bounce” my arm
The flags rely on momentum and not on my strength
(Picky point) Flags should be symmetrical on both sides
