Proper flag illumination is something all flagpole owners should consider for a few reasons, the most important being that doing so adheres to American flag etiquette guidelines.

With so many options for flagpole lighting out there, choosing the best options for you means learning what you can about a flagpole light system as well as investing in the right equipment to do it well.

See below for an in-depth guide on why having a flagpole light system for your American Flag is so crucial.

Why Having a Lighting System for Your Flagpole is Necessary

Proper American Flag etiquette is common knowledge for some, as well as a foreign concept for others. That said, most people understand the general rules of displaying a US Flag: don’t let it touch the ground, fly it on holidays (non-negotiable), etc.

However, the rules on when to fly the flag have become a bit unclear. Generally speaking, the traditional rule is to raise the flag at sunrise and take it down before sunset. Only hanging it during the day when the sun is up is a way to show respect.

But when flagpole lights came around, the entire complexion of the rule changed. So what is not acceptable for flying the flag at night? Are there certain lights that are mandatory or frowned upon?

U.S. flag code indicates that people should always have a method for illuminating the American flag during darker hours. In other words, it’s okay to fly the flag at night, so long as you have a way of illuminating it. 

What is the Best Flagpole Lighting System?

If you’ve decided to illuminate the American flag at night on your property, then you need to find the best flagpole lighting system for the job.

But how do you know which one is best? There are a few features to look for specifically. First, you will want to find a lighting system that offers a simple setup. Make sure that the system you purchase lines up with the dimensions of your flagpole.

The highly reviewed Titan Solar Light is a top-of-the-line flagpole lighting system manufactured in America and equipped with long lasting LED bulbs, replaceable batteries and a 1/2″ universal fitting.

The Titan solar light also has an automatic on and off switch that stays lit throughout the night and then gives the sun its moment to shimmer on that beautiful American flag when the sun rises!

It also comes with a 2-year warranty to ensure you get your money’s worth and is available in silver or bronze/black to ensure it matches your flagpole.

Perhaps the coolest part about the Titan Solar Light is that it’s installed above the American flag. It shines the light down on the flag so that you can see the stars and stripes more clearly.
