High-start flag / pennant for a F3-RES legal high start. The purpose of this is to add some drag to the line so the ring disengages from the towhook as soon as the tension eases off. The pennant also makes it easy to see when the high-start is released so the gliding part of the flight can be timed, and to make it easier to spot the end of the line when it has fallen back to the ground.
The current ones are RED, not yellow as shown in the photo.

Note the current German rules require a pennant is used, so using of a parachute instead is not okay.
