A 2020 YouGov poll revealed that over half of us have the Stars and Stripes at home. While YouGov didn’t discover what percentage of those of us with flags at home have them flying proudly for an outdoors flagpole, a walk or drive around many neighborhoods reveals that people are increasingly showing their patriotism in this way.
If you’re looking to join them, you’re in luck!
Here’s a rundown of various flagpole options that you can get your hands on here at Collins Flags, depending on your circumstances and what you’re looking for.
The Best Flagpole on a Budget
We’ve made sure that unfavorable economic conditions are no barrier to you showing your patriotism!
Our 3 x 5 Outdoor Steel Flagpole Set makes it easy for you to fly the Stars and Stripes from anywhere outside your home. For less than $10, this wall flagpole set gives you your American flag, a small flagpole, flagpole bracket fasteners, and a plastic eagle accessory. Everything you need and a great starter flag or gift for young patriots!
The Best Mounted Flagpole
If you’re happy to spend a little more but are still looking to fly your flag from a flagpole attached to your house, you have plenty of options.
Among our most popular are this One Piece White Fiberglass Heavy Duty Municipal Flagpole Set and the slightly more expensive Two Piece White Aluminum Heavy Duty Spinning Flagpole with Adjustable Bracket.
The one piece flagpole will be the more robust, especially if you live in a windy area, but both are excellent choices if you’re looking to attach a flagpole to your property.
Now let’s explore your options if you’re installing a flagpole in your garden or yard.
The Best Flagpole for Windy Areas
If you live in a windy location, your best option is a high-quality one-piece flagpole. These can be a little more challenging to install, than other types of flagpoles, but it’ll mean you can have confidence in its robustness and keep your flag flying proudly at all times.
You can view all our premium internal halyard flagpoles including single and multi-piece versions here, or check out our Economy Extra Series if you’re looking to spend a little less.
The Best Flagpole for Less Windy Areas
For locations that don’t get as much wind, our Homesteader Aluminum in Ground flagpoles are an excellent choice.
Another option is to opt for a Telescoping Flagpole. While this option may cost a little more, they’re built to last, and also give you the added option of easily swapping your flag when you want to. If a premium flagpole is outside of your budget but you live in a windy area, then you could potentially use a telescoping flagpole so long as you’re around to lower it during high winds.
The Best Flagpole for Flying Extra-Large Flags
But how do you know how big of a flagpole you need?
Luckily, there’s a simple rule that will help you choose the right flag or in ground flagpole, regardless of which you choose first. The rule says that for every 10 feet of height on your flagpole, your flag’s long side should extend by 3 feet. So, if you have a 20-foot flagpole, you should choose a 6 feet x 4 feet flag.
Of course, the final choice is yours, and we can cater for whatever size flag and flagpole you’re looking for!
What Size Flagpole Should I Get for my House?
Can’t decide which size you need or need a little extra guidance? We can help you!
A good way to choose a flagpole is based on the height of your property:
- Choose a flagpole of up to 25 feet if you live in a single-story property
- Opt for a flagpole of 25 to 30 feet if you live in a two-story building
- Go for a 30-to-40-foot flagpole if you live in a three-story building
If you live in a building with unusual dimensions, like an old property with higher than usual ceilings, adjust the height of the flagpole you need accordingly.
The Best Flagpole if Budget Doesn’t Matter
If money is no object, we highly recommend opting for a suitable flagpole from our Premium IH Series. We offer various diameters of flagpoles, so think about the space you have on the ground as well as the height of the flagpole you need.
Once you’ve chosen your favorite premium flagpole and are confident it’s the right one for your space, contact us on 800-950-4061 for a price and shipping quote.
The Best Flagpole for East Swapping
All our flag poles come with a cleat and other accessories to help you take down or swap your flag whenever you need to.
However, if this is super important to you, for whatever reason, then opt for our Telescoping Flagpole.
