When most people think of a flagpole, they assume that the flagpole in their neighbor’s yard is the same pole in front of a government building—wrong! There are actually several flagpole variations for different applications. If you’re curious about the different variations, you’ve come to the right place. Check out the different types of flagpoles below.


One of the easiest ways to show your patriotism is by flying the American flag outside your home. Depending on your city, you may be able to have a standard aluminum or telescoping flagpole in your front yard. On the other hand, some cities don’t allow flagpoles. Don’t worry—you can almost always have a mounted flagpole for your porch.


Whether you’re a company that wants to fly a flag with your logo or you’re a municipality building that flies your state’s flag alongside the American flag, you need a commercial flagpole. There are a few options when it comes to a commercial flagpole. The first option is the most economical which has an external halyard. Another option is an internal halyard which is a best seller because it looks great and provides added security. Lastly, you could choose a sectional flagpole (which is also suitable for residential applications).


If you work at a government facility or you merely want to show your patriotism inside your business, you may want indoor flagpoles throughout your building. Don’t make the mistake of flying the American flag incorrectly by using the wrong flagpole. Our indoor flagpoles are equipped with an elegant gold base in addition to a variety of ornament options to fit your needs.

Any of the different types of flagpoles mentioned will be an excellent addition to your building. There is, however, one factor you should consider before choosing a pole that’s going outside—the wind. Each flagpole has a wind rating, so make sure your flagpole can withstand the winds in your area.

Federal Flags Quality And Service

Having ordered a 20' Flagpole and Flags, I have recived quality products and Great service from Federal Flag. My furture purchase of any product that Federal Flags sells, will be made with them.

Amazing Product and company

Awesome gorgeous sturdy flagpole. We got the bronze. Federal Flags sent detailed instructions and communicated throughout the process. It took my husband and I about a week to dig the hole and put the rock, sand and cement in. We had never tried something like this and was a little more time consuming than we initially thought, but we are both elderly so it took us a little longer.

We got it mostly straight!! LOL. My husband cut the rope too short and is fiddling around with it trying to get it lined up. So, lesson is: before you cut the rope, run the flag up the pole first and see where your hooks are, get it lined up and then cut it. He had to keep moving the swivel hooks so he had enough rope on one side. Very important since it is 15' tall and we don't have a ladder that tall if we have to restring it.

The hooks and hardware are nice and sturdy-no plastic. This should last a long time.

Quality product!

Great product

Received flag pole and flag in a timely manner. Upon inspection everything looks great. Have had to put it in proper storage due to other issues here but so far I think it’s going to be a wonderful addition to our church grounds.
