Best Flags To Fly From Your Flagpole

Outdoor Nylon U.S. FlagWe often get asked about our opinion of what flag or flags a customer should fly from their flagpole.  Aside from the obvious answer of the American Flag, there is a variety of types of fabric for the American Flag.  If you are in a high-wind area, we offer the Polyester American Flag.  This flag is meant for those areas that experience a lot of high winds and need a flag that is going to last.  They are made of a 2-Ply Polyester material that is designed to hold up to this kind of weather.

The other option would be a Nylon American Flag.  These flags are great for commercial and residential use.  The advantage of using a nylon flag is that it flies nicer in a light breeze, it’s a little brighter colors and it sheds water really well.  These flags hold up really well and combine that with their beauty, they are really hard to beat!

POW/MIA Flags

POW-MsIA FlagThere are also other great options if you want to fly another flag.  A lot of customers will get the POW/MIA flag.  This is a great way to honor those Veteran’s who never came home.  It can be purchased as a single sided (reads correct on one side and reverse on the other) or a double sided (reads correct on both sides).

Get Your Flagpole Installed This Spring!

Well it’s about that time of year.  The ground is starting to thaw out, snow is melting and everyone is ready to be outside.  For those of you in warmer climates, God bless you!

Telescoping flagpoles for residential and commercial use.

With spring comes nicer weather and the chance to get that flagpole installed that you have always wanted.  We sell a wide variety of flagpoles from telescoping flagpoles to commercial style flagpoles and everything in between.  Flagpoles are really easy to install yourself and the help of a friend or two.  You can usually install up to around a 25′ flagpole yourself without any equipment, but this could vary depending on the type of flagpole you select.  We always advise to have help around because it makes the job easier.  If you are a residential customer, the telescoping flagpoles are a great option and they are super easy to install.  There is no rope or pulleys to worry about you just raise it section by section.  All that needs to be done is to install the pvc sleeve that comes with the flagpole and let it sit for 24-48 hours and you are set!

Commercial Flagpoles

If you are a commercial customer, the install is still not that difficult and depending on the size and weight you select it can be done by just about anyone.  Landscaping companies will typically do an install for you if it’s not something you want to do yourself.  Construction companies can also help with flagpoles that are too large for the landscaper to install.

The Right Type of Flag To Fly

Keep in mind that the size of the flagpole will determine the size of flag you can fly.  The rule of thumb is that the length of the flag should not exceed a 1/3 of the length of your pole.  For instance, if you install a 25′ flagpole the flag should be no larger than 5’x8′.

We carry all telescoping flagpoles in stock and some of the commercial flagpoles.  If we don’t have the flagpole in stock it typically only takes around 1-2 weeks to get it to you.  We can ship direct to your job site, business or residence.  All commercial flagpoles are shipped via truck and trailer and telescoping flagpoles are all shipped using ground shipping.
