Flagpole Alternatives: 4 Unique Ways to Display Your Flags!

May 15, 2019 2 min read

Summer is upon us and it has brought plenty of events and reason for showing your patriotism and displaying the Star-Spangled Banner! Americans love to hang their flags in front of their houses around the Fourth of July. It’s how they show their love and support for their country.

However, not everyone has access to flagpoles or other structures to let their flags fly on their property. This doesn’t mean that they can’t display the love for their country in any other way. Here are some alternatives for you to fly your new flag without a flagpole.

Frame It

Framing can make for a very impressive and dramatic way to display your American flag. You can get any size of flag according to the wall space in your home and get it framed in a nice antique piece with clear glass for dust resistance. You can hang it over the mantelpiece, behind the couch, or in the foyer of your house for a perfect entryway look for your home.

Mount It

Mounting is the simplest and most cost-effective way of hanging your flag. Just use some banner clips or grommets and hang the fabric flat against any wall in your home. You can also add flourishes such as matching cords or mounting brackets for an even more impressive look.

Drape It

You can also drape your flag on the back of the sofa, on the headboard of your bed, or on a table for a rustic yet patriotic look. Be sure to follow flag etiquette when you are draping it by keeping the stars on top and not letting it fall to the ground. Also, you need to keep it elevated so it’s away from shoes and dirty feet.

Hang It

The flag looks beautiful when it’s displayed horizontally by hanging it near the window, on the porch, or on a balcony. It requires a few pieces of hardware such as brackets and some rope to secure it but it’s a great solution for displaying your patriotic pride where everyone can see it. Also, make sure however you choose to hang your flag, the canton, that part with the stars in it, is always to the top left from the viewer’s perspective.

Flagpoles were subpar and with marking around the middle that with suggested cleaning methods, never worked. Had to get them powder coated. Worst customer service possible!

I would love to write a review but I haven't got my product yet when will I receive it

Beautiful finish on quality materials. My install is not typical. I previously made my own pole out of 1.5" steel pipe with welded brackets to bolt to the hand rail and joists on the corner of my deck. It served it's purpose but never looked nearly as nice as it does now. I simply made nylon bushings to fit tightly between the steel pipe and the 3" aluminum pole and slipped it over. So far the highest wind we've had was 47mph and this configuration didn't flex at all with the flag at top mast. The flag is thicker material than most, and again, top quality material and craftsmanship. The best part for me is that this is 100% made in the USA. The only piece of the kit I didn't use was the nylon flag clips. You can upgrade to snaps that won't clang against the pole in the wind. Customer service was quick to respond and great to talk with. I will unquestionably buy another one for my next home!

Hard to find someone to do the job properly ,but after two weeks we finally got it in.
It is awesome and my neighbors are jealous. A couple of them have the telescopic flags so I enjoy telling them that mine is bigger than yours!
