As a flag flutters during a gentle breeze, the green leafy branches of the tree also flutter and sway along the breeze.

The leaves are compared with the fluttering flag during a gentle breeze. As the breeze blows the leaves also flutters like the flag providing the fresh air.

The poet is telling that as trees are cleaning up the air, the air starts to move in joy. The leaves act like a flag of the breeze which shows the happiness of air.

The poet says that the man plants a flag, that flies freely in the mild breeze. The poet here compares the leafy branches of the tree to a flag and the stem to a beautiful shaft or pole that stands tall

The man who plants a tree is not only planting a tree but he makes a free breeze possible for everyone because a tree one planted will grow in size covered with thick leafy branches which could generate wind and breeze.
