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.

I purchased this flag for my husband to fly in our front yard. It is well-made and viewable from both sides. We love it!


Item was as advertised. Worked great.

Have not stood up yet. A few other projects in front of standing it up. Hardware looks well made. Top Cover was bent but we were able to fix to original condition. Would like the opportunity to review after it is erected. If all goes well i will be purchasing two more for the property. Thanks for the persistence, i believe it will be a great addition to our place.
