OK. Let’s make a flag animation in Blender. To do so make a simple scene like this:

Make sure that the flag is a separate object.

Give it some materials and let’s start animating.
Select the flag and subdivide it a few times(but not too much for the simulation)

Select the left vertices like this and add them to a new vertex group.

Now Add a Cloth Simulation to that flag and select the vertex group that we created as the Pin Group.

Now play the animation and see what will happen. Interesting huh 🙂 ??

To Improve the animation make sure that you enabled the self-collision on cloth simulation settings.

OK. let’s add some wind.

Shift+A > Force Field > Wind and place it like this. Place it like this and increase the force strength.

Now play the animation from frame 0 and see what happens.

This is my animation rendered in EEVEE hope you’ve liked it and it was useful to you.
