enter image description here

  1. Create a cylinder for the pole
  2. Create a plane and line it up with the pole
  3. Subdivide the plane by maybe 10.
  4. In edit mode, select the points on the plane that are along the pole
  5. Assign them to a vertex group called "Pinned"
  6. In the physics tab for the plane, create a cloth simulation
  7. Under shape, select the vertex group "Pinned"
  8. Turn on self collisions
  9. select all faces on the plane and set shade smooth
  10. Play the animation and watch it animate.
  11. Adjust as needed to get the look you want.
