The size of flag that will be flown determines the distance. Allow at least one foot more than the length of the flag. If possible, allow extra distance so that your customer will have the option to fly a larger flag in the future if they choose. (A distance of one and a half times the flag's length will allow one size larger flag to be flown).
**NOTE: Be very cautious when working around power lines. If a pole comes in contact with a power line, serious injury or death can occur to anyone standing nearby.**
