A toggle switch at one end and a long length of field telephone wire to the far end with a relay connected to drive the lamp.

Assuming that the light already has a power supply, can you not do it with a timer, or are the turn-on times at random intervals?

If that's the case, you need something like this.

I am a bit concerned about that device, it doesn't say whether or not it can be used license free in the UK, there isn't enough information in the description.

There are very strict regulations governing the use of firing ranges, and you should consult with the range operators before making any alterations to safety procedures - have you done that?

Power to a red light can fail, causing the light to go out - that can't happen with red flags.

Yes it's true the power could stop .but then the flag could blow away or the cord could break that's why there is range safety officers
