Antenna as an accesory option.

Hi all,
I'm riding a 2014 gl1800.
I wanna install another radio antenna to the bike just for visual reasons.
Double antenna looks good and i can install 2 flag poles on the antennas.

As i make a research i found that there is an accesory unit as called cb radio. This kit has anteanna, but i think this is for communication as a walkie-talkie. Am i right ?
I dont need a cb radio unit. Just need an antenna looks like working but just to sit on its's place and carry a flag

So i have to buy oem honda made radio antenna and not cb radio antenna . am i right ?
Cb radio anteanna is diffrent forum the radio antenna or does do they look same and install the same way ?

If you give some information I will be glad. In my country there is not much goldwing riders and they dont have a sharing forum or facebook group so i cant find any user experience in my country. What a shame ((

If you check eBay there are some used original equipment antennas for sale. Don't know if they ship internationally but you can check.

Cb antenna differs from the AM/FM antenna as the CB has the center load piece and is a tad shorter if I recall correctly.

I would not recommend putting a flag on the antenna - use flag poles. I included the link so you can see what they look like.

Flags on the antenna can damage the antenna as well as the socket the antenna is holding.

Been there, done that.

I have flag mounts that attach to the antenna posts (not the whip itself) and they are solid.

Thank you all for the answers.
Then it's clear that i will buy fm antenna not cb radio antenna.
I prefer to buy genuine honda brand antenna because i want both the antennas would be exact the same.
It will cost a little more but i can buy it via the dealer so it will be easier for me.

Also after that i will buy two flag poles and carry one Turkish flag and a goldwing association flag on them ))
