Light will travel approximately 25,920,000,000 km in one day. If a marker on the flag pole was placed at 8,254,777,070 km from the starting point of the flag pole, the marker will have had to have traveled 25,920,000,000 km in one day. Any markers placed farther than 9 billion km must travel faster than light to make a rotation.
The amount of energy required to move matter at an infinite speed must also be infinite. This energy can only come from the weakest force in the universe, gravity. Although weak, gravity has no maximum force. More matter equals more gravity. The classic theory of a black hole would posses the infinite density required to manage this. If our “flag poled” earth was revolving around such a black hole the energy would be present. If the flag pole was pointed in the exact opposite direction of the black hole which we are revolving around, and our “flag poled”earth was in the same type of orbit around this black hole as the moon orbits earth now (revolution and rotation exactly equal) the speed of light would be broken by matter. If the pole was not infinitely long and the black hole was infinitely dense the black hole would remain perfectly still, a binary orbit would not occur unless the flag pole was infinitely long. As I stated though; if the orbit of our flag poled earth was 24 hours, the flag pole only needs to be 9,000,000,000km long to break light speed. In this diagram the flag will be traveling faster than the speed of light.

Sorry for spelling and grammer mistakes. I just was thinking about this and got it down on paper right away. My math is not exact either but that doesn't affect the theory i am thinking of.
EDIT: Well the cheap little diagram i tried to make goes goofy on me when i submit my post, just quote my message if you want to see it how i made it. It should correct it's self in the typing box when your quoting.
