Building a Hinged Flag Pole Mount

My next door neighbor has this big hunk of concrete in his front year that appears to have been used for an old flag pole that has long since rusted and fell over, I would imagine. He asked if I could weld him up something new that he could use to mount a smaller pole, something more like a naval yardarm that has provisions for multiple flags. He is going to use some 1″ black plumbing pipe for the new pole. He asked me if I could fabricate some kind of pivoting/hinged mount that we could bolt onto the concrete.

I turned a small piece on the 13″ South Bend lathe for the pivot and used my Primeweld TIG225X in SMAW mode to weld the pieces together.
