Our one piece aluminum flash collar is a perfect finishing touch for your flagpole project. A flash collar is an aesthetic consideration that is not needed in all applications.
We recommend a flash collar for flagpoles installed in cement, grass or asphalt. For flagpoles installed in beds where they will be surrounded by gravel or large rocks, a flash collar may not be desired as it will sit on top of the rocks and could slant or look out of place.
For grass installations - the flash collar is purely aesthetic. If installed, it will keep grass from getting too close to your pole, making it easier to trim the grass without putting scratches on the flagpole.
