Let's say I want to make a flag.
I make a stick, which is a cube with a long height. Then I make a cloth object. Technically, I want to somehow attach the cloth object to the cube object, simulating a flag... but I can't find a way to efficiently achieve such =/

What you need to do is to add a collider to the object you want to attach the cloth to. Make sure the cloth mesh and the collider overlap in some vertices. Then, in the cloth component, expand the "Attached Colliders" field, and set the size to 1 (or how man colliders you want to attach). Expand "Element 0" and Drag the collider object to the "Collider" slot.

Hook up the object as a child to the parent ( Drop the "flag cloth" object onto the pole object. An action you can perform in the editor tab named "hierarchy" when your scene and project are loaded.
What happens now is that when you change the pole, the same will happen to the "flag cloth". You can specifically add effects or other to child which will not effect the parent (like wind blowing through it) if you want for the future.
