Stands range from cheap to expensive. If you get the stands that are made specifically for wind flags, they will come with a pivot pin of whatever size you need included. If you use photography tripods you will need to adapt a pivot pin to the top of it. I make adapters for this purpose and they are $7 each, so take that into consideration when pricing stands.
When using daisy flags you must stake the tripod type stand down or they will blow over if you get strong wind, possibly damaging your flag. You can buy these from photography stores or off eBay. You can often get them pretty cheap from eBay if you are patient. On eBay you can do a search for “light stand”, and if you’re patient you can find some very good deals on older used ones that will usually work just fine for little expense.
Stake-in type stands are nice, but when the ground gets hard in the summer you have to hammer them in. They are often easier than the tripod type to get standing vertical if you have a lot of uneven ground on the ranges you shoot.
One more thing to consider is the height necessary for the ranges you will be shooting on. Some ranges require short stands, and some ranges require tall stands. Too low is better than too high. To be legal you must have the top of your flag below a line from the top of the bench to the bottom of the target.
