build a flagpole?

I need many flagpoles for banner style flags that hang vertically, approx 25 inch wide banner. Has anyone "made" a custom hanging flagpole for this type of banner flag? All the premade ones I see are 5 feet long, which is 35 inches more than I need/want. I need 15 of these, so if they can be made cheaply all the better.

I was thinking of using hardwood 1 inch diameter oak dowels, and cutting to length of 30 or so to allow for bracket space and all. What can I use for the "end cap" part?

Thanks for ideas-Josh

You might look for curtain rod finials.
