What factors affect the price of a Flagpole?

- Installation Type (Ground Set, Shoe Base or Wall Mount)
How many Flags can I fly on my flagpole?
- Flagpoles typically can fly one (1) to three (3) flags depending on the design factors. Pole length and diameter will help determine how many can be flown at one time.
How do I select a Flagpole size?
- Most flagpoles are chosen based solely on the visual aesthetics desired by project owners. An industry accepted, inexpensive way to get a visual feel for the height of the flagpole is to take a kite string and attach it to a helium filled balloon. Simply allow the balloon to rise to the area you were considering flying the flag, and measure how much string is out to give the desired flagpole mounting height.
- The size flag that will be flown will determine the distance. A minimum distance of 1-1/2 times the flag length is recommended.
- NOTE: Be cautious when working around power lines. If a pole comes in contact with a power line, serious injury or death can occur.
- While there is no rule in the US Flag Code as long as the U.S. flag is on top and secondary flags are no larger. The industry accepted standard is that two flags of a similar or exact size is the most pleasing design.
