Outdoor Flagpoles & Hardware

Whether you need a 10 ft. or a 100 ft., residential or commercial, we have the right flag pole for you. Flag poles are made from several types of materials such as aluminum, fiberglass or steel. The heights listed for our In-Ground flagpoles is the above ground height. The over all length of the pole is greater to allow for the proper in ground installation.

Here are a few items to consider when selecting a flagpole. The first is the size of the structure it will be installed next to. For a single story, choose 15 to 20 ft. For two story, choose 20 to 25 ft. Will you be flying the flag at night? If so, consider placing the pole near a power source to provide a light or check our Flagpole Lighting options. Flags can be noisy sometimes, so don't place the pole too close to a bedroom. And most importantly, wind loads should always be considered, especially tall commercial poles.

To determine the size flag to fly on an in-ground pole the rule of thumb is that the length of the flag should be a quarter to a third of the height of the pole. For example a 20ft. pole can be flying a 3 x 5 ft. to a 4 x 6 ft. size flag depending on local wind loads.
