1. Flagpoles for Small Flags
A small flag is one that is less than 4ft x 6ft. This size range includes the common 3 x 5 flag that many homeowners choose to fly.
For flags in this size range, you should choose a flagpole that is no more than 25ft tall. For freestanding flagpoles, the lowest height should be 15ft. This range of heights will ensure the flag size is proportionate to the flag height.
We specialize in flagpoles that telescope up to 25ft because this is the best range of heights for almost all homeowners. A house mounted flagpole with a 4ftx6ft flag is a great demonstration of your patriotism on almost any home.
2. Flagpoles for Medium Flags
If your property or home is large enough to accommodate a medium-sized flag, you can choose a taller flagpole. Medium flags are those between 4ft x 6ft and 8ft x 12ft.
To ensure this size of flag flies naturally and is visible, you should install a flagpole between 25ft tall and 50ft. Make sure you have enough clearance around the flagpole so that the flag can fly straight out without hitting your home or any other structure.
3. Flagpoles for Large Flags
If you want to fly a huge flag, you’re going to need a taller flagpole. Large flags range from 10ft x 15ft to 20ft x 30ft. These large flags will definitely be the most prominent attribute to your property once installed.
For a large flag, you’ll need a flagpole that’s between 40-60 ft tall. This large of a pole and flag costs a lot to install and maintain.
4. Flagpoles for Rural Homes
If you live in a rural setting, your flag and flagpole may have a lot more room to stand in. You’ll also want to consider how easy it is to see your flag.
In a rural setting, there is a good chance you’ll have more room in which to set your flagpole. This space will allow you to pick a larger flag, which is also better in terms of visibility. That means you will be looking at taller flagpoles.
In rural areas, you’ll likely have more leeway on the color and finish of your flagpole. Because your neighbors aren’t close to you, you can pick from a range of colors to suit your preference. You don’t need to be concerned about how the flagpole might blend into the neighborhood.
5. Flagpoles for City and Town Residents
If you live in a city or town, you may have restrictions on how large a flag can be or how high you fly your flag. in such locations, make sure you check for regulations before looking at flagpoles for sale.
You might also have space restrictions in which you’d be required to install your flagpole closer to your home. With this in mind, staying in the 15ft-25ft range will look the best.
Pick a color finish for your flagpole that fits in with the look and feel of your neighborhood. Choose from silver, light bronze, or black/bronze. Try to match the color to the trim on your home, the color of your light fixtures, and/or the color of your fence.
6. Flagpoles for One-Story or Multiple Stories
Consider the aesthetic appeal of your flag and flagpole. Your flag and flagpole should complement your home rather than dominate it.
If you have a one-story home, a smaller flag and shorter flagpole make the most sense. If you have a two-story home, you can install something a little bigger and taller.
If the flagpole will be close to a one-story home keep it under 20ft tall. If it’s farther away from your home or other buildings you could go up to 25ft.
For two-story homes, if the flagpole is close to the house 20ft-25ft will look best. If you’re installing it farther away, then a 25ft pole will look amazing.
7. Flagpoles for Windy Conditions
