What Size Flagpole Do I Need

The size of grounds and buildings are always important when determining the correct size flagpole for your particular application. Generally, in residential settings, flagpoles 20 and 25 feet in height are compatible with most one and two story single family dwellings. White fiberglass flagpoles are always most complimentary with any architectural style. They have elegance that is striking against any residential setting.

Whether your house is situated on water, a lake, a river, or the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, Nautical flag poles will look great. These poles are fitted with a yardarm that stretches across the pole about a third of the distance from the top. This yardarm can hold two additional flags on each side of the flagpole. Originally popular in New England and along the Atlantic Coast, yardarms can now be found in almost any part of the country.

Flagpoles complementing commercial buildings can be found in sizes 20 feet and upward. Once again the size of the building and grounds are the deciding and most important factors. For office buildings flagpoles, 40 to 60 feet in height add a final corporate statement. Remember, however, some buildings will look just as elegant with poles only 25 feet high. Many companies will use two poles and fly the United States and State flag. Another option is to use three poles and fly the United States,  State, and Corporate flag or banner.

Flagpoles can also be used at entrances or gateways or along drives leading up to corporate headquarters.
