Smile Flag pole

This could be a completely wacky question but here it is... I have a beautiful Georgian 24 sailboat and for this winter I drop the mast in order to do some work on it. What I was thinking was to put some sort of flag pole and halyard up so I can run a flag up to the top of the mast while sailing. Just like the old pirate boats, have the Joly Rodger high up on top of the mast, the kids and I would love it. I have not seen a sailboat postion a flag on top of her mast and it got me to thinking perhaps there is a real rational reason why not. Maybe interfearing with antenas or lights or wind indicator....but placed high enough it should be no problem. What do you think?
