Flag Sizing Chart
How to Choose the Right Size Flag for your Flagpole
When flying 1 flag on a single flagpole the length of the flag should be at least one quarter the height of the pole. For example, a 40-foot pole requires at minimum a 6'x10' flag with max being 8'x12'. The chart below is a good guide for determining the proper size flag for your pole.
Flying 2 flags on a Single flagpole?
When flying 2 flags on a single flagpole you want to make sure not to "over flag" or "have too much flag". Too much flag on a single pole can cause undue stress on the flagpole in bad weather and it will not look good.
Examples of proper sizing:
- 20' Flagpole-Minimum Top flag 3'x5', Bottom (2nd flag) 2'x3'
- 20' Flagpole Maximum Top flag 4'x6', Bottom (2nd flag) 3'x5'
- 40' Flagpole-Minimum Top flag 6'x10', Bottom (2nd flag) 5'x8'
- 40' Flagpole Maximum Top flag 8'x12', Bottom (2nd flag) 6'x10'
