Default Traditional yurt Door flag poles

This is a question of curiosity more than anything...

I have looked at a ton of yurt pictures in order to design my 20ft yurt greenhouse, and have learned quite a bit.

But one thing I noticed is that on some traditional yurts there are two flagpoles on the wings of the door. Are these true flag poles for decoration or do they serve a particular structural purpose. If so can you give more details on how they are installed. None of the images I have found have enough detail to give the information.

Love the great information on the forum!

Default Re: Traditional yurt Door flag poles

The 'flag' poles are actually the two extra rafter poles. New gers in Mongolia always come with two extra in case of breakage, or a badly warped one.They actually serve a purpose by making a better seal of the layers of felt, and outer canvas to the door, being held in place by the tension bands.
