frequently asked questions

Do you have a regular size flagpole?
  Flagpoles come in heights ranging from 10' tall to 80' tall in aluminum and even taller in steel.
The most popular height in our opinion is 25' tall.





How tall a flagpole do I need?

The factors we consider when making a recommendation are:


How far off the road will the pole be located? Closer to the road doesn't need to be as high.

How tall is the structure that the flagpole will be complimenting? The taller the building the taller the flagpole.


How many flags do you want to fly at one time on one pole? The more flags the taller the flagpole needs to be. We recommend that two flags per pole is the best way, but a maximum of three flags can be flown at one time on one pole.


What are you using your flagpole for? Is it for an accent piece in a garden, out in front of your entrance, or is it to be the focal point of your business and you want people to use it in identifying your location? An accent piece needs to be just that, part of a bigger picture. If you want to use the flagpole when you are giving directions to your business or home it needs to be BIG.





How big does my flag need to be?
  Take the height of the pole divided by 4 and it will give you a rough estimate of the hem side of your flag. We like to take that size and go one size larger. ex. (20/4=5 or 5'x8' U.S. Flag) (70/4=17.5' or 20'x30' U.S. Flag).
Remember the larger the flag you fly directly effects the hardware on your poll, especially the rope and flag snaps.



What kind of material are flags made of?

There are three types of material used by our manufacturer:


• Cotton - Not recommended for outdoor use and should not get wet.
• Nylon - The most widely used material in the flag industry today. It's flyability, weather resistance, and price make it the best choice in our opinion.
• Polyester - The look and feel of cotton with better wearability than nylon. This is the best material but it takes a lot of wind to fly this flag. These flags also hold water longer and are heavier than nylon so they are worse on the pole and hardware. U.S. Flags are in most cases the only flags available in this material, so if you are going to fly a state flag under the U.S. Flag it will likely not fly at the same wind speed as the U.S.
