Flag Pole/Flag ratio

For an outdoor flag on an in-ground flag pole the most common way to size your flag is by the height of the pole. The length of the flag should be at least 1/4 the height of the pole. Use this chart as a minimum size for the largest flag on your In-ground pole.

For a pole that attaches to your house we recommend a 2.5x4' flag on a 5' flag pole,or a 3x5' on a 6' pole.

The biggest factor in hanging these flags is that you don't want the flag to touch anything (bushes, trees, gutters, siding, door knobs, etc.) when it flies.Anything touching the flag will shorten the life by causing early wear and tear on the flag.

To get the flag out away from the house try our 8' poles which fit into all the same brackets as the smaller ones but protect your flag better.
