Choosing the Right Size Flag for your Flag Pole

Choosing the Right Size of Flag for your Flag Pole

You might be wondering whether the size of flag you buy really makes a difference. I mean, a pole is a pole? Does it really matter the size of flag that goes on it? The answer is Yes, Size DOES Matter! 

If the flag you put up is too large for the flag pole, it will not flutter properly in the wind. The size of the flag makes it difficult for the wind to catch enough surface area to spread out evenly and display beautifully. If the flag is too small it will look awkward on my pole and deteriorate faster due to the more severe winds at higher altitudes.  

DETERMINE THE FLAG SIZE YOU NEED

Follow our sizing guide below to give you a sense of the size of flag that would be perfect for your pole. 

Check out the table below to choose the appropriate size flag for you outdoor flag pole.
