I believe bike flags are triangles and don't have enough material to be considered "legal" on the dunes. Just get the flag there, every shop and gas station in town has them. Drill a 1/2 hole in your bumper and take a couple of cresent wrenches with you.

How long are you going to be there for? Staying where? Driving what?

it must be at least 10' tall and a certain size and orange. x2 on just buying one there. they even sell multi piece ones that break down and are more manageable when off the vehicle

This was actually harder than everyone made it seem! When I did mine, it took us two nights cuz we basically broke the drill bit trying to get it through the bumper and had to go buy a new one and finish the next day. I'm glad I didn't wait till I got up there to do it.
