Consider the size of the building and surrounding grounds. Generally,
residential flagpoles are 20' - 25' in height. Commercial poles can be 30' -
For the Canadian flag the most common size is 36" x 72". The proportion for
the Canadian flag is always 2 to 1. Almost all of our flags are made in
Canada and are 2:1 in proportion.
A-1 Flags Inc. recommends the following SIZE guidelines: 36" x 72" flag for
poles up to 30'; 45" x 90" flag for poles 30' - 40'; 54" x 108" flag for
poles 40'. Flag extensions are required to fly two flags on one pole. Drop
one size down for second flag. Lower flag should have slightly smaller
dimensions. Consider wind resistance to ensure the flagpole can safely
support the desired flag.
There is no definite answer to how long a flag will last. The life of a flag
depends on weather, location, contamination and how often you fly your flag.
Your flag is a piece of cloth that spins, flaps, bakes and freezes. It is
not uncommon that in certain conditions flags need replacing 3 times per
year. Your flag can be repaired if slightly frayed or torn. A-1 Flags offers
Flags can be hand washed in a mild detergent. You can iron flags at the
lowest heat setting or steam to remove wrinkles. Spread out the flag until
dry. Do not store your flag wet or damp.
When a flag becomes tattered and is no longer in suitable condition for use,
it should be destroyed in a dignified way by burning it privately. A-1 Flags
will dispose of all your old flags in a dignified manner.
Little or no maintenance is necessary for aluminum poles. Steel poles will
usually require resurfacing in 2-6 years depending on the finish used and
the area in which the pole is located. Stainless Steel requires little or no
maintenance to maintain its appearance. Halyard and external hardware should
be checked every few months for wear and tear.
