Types of Flagpoles

When choosing a flagpole for your home or business, there are several important factors to consider. First, decide on the type of flagpole you want. There are several options, including basic poles, telescoping poles, and commercial poles. Each has its advantages, so be sure to consider the environment, budget, and purpose of the flagpole before making a selection.

Choose An Appropriate Length

Next, decide on the length of the flagpole. If you are displaying a large flag, you will need a longer pole. A shorter pole can be used to display a small flag. Be sure to measure the pole and the flag before making a purchase.

Material Matters

Weigh the different materials used to make flagpoles. Aluminum is lightweight and low-maintenance, while steel is slightly heavier but has a longer life span. Wood provides an authentic and traditional look, while fiberglass is a great option for those wanting a modern appearance.

Install Your Flag Properly for Optimal Display

Finally, it is time to install your flagpole and the flagpole accessories. Proper installation of the flagpole will ensure optimal display and protection of your flag. Your flag should be installed at a 90-degree angle, with the stars facing up and the union (fifty stars) in the top left corner of the display. Flagpole accessories may include flags, mounting clips, flagpoles, pulleys, halyard ropes, and base covers.
