What Size Flag Should I Buy?

Although there is no official Flag Code for determining the correct flag size for your flagpole height, for aesthetic reasons, it is important to choose the a flag that is proportionate. The rule of thumb is that the length of the flag should be one-fourth or one-third the height of the flagpole. Traditionally, most people follow the one-fourth rule when choosing a flag size for their flagpole.

Flag Size Chart
15 Foot - 3' x 5' 20 Foot - 3' x 5'
25 Foot - 4' x 6' 30 Foot - 5' x 8'
40 Foot - 6' x 10' 45 Foot - 6' x 10'
50 Foot - 8' x 12' 60 Foot - 10' x 15'
65 Foot - 10' x 19' 70 Foot - 12' x 18'

If you are displaying two flags on a flagpole, choose a size smaller than the recommended flag size for your flagpole height. For example, if you should display a 4' x 6' flag on your flagpole, fly two 3' x 5' flags instead. If you would like the higher flag to be larger, use a 3' x 5' flag on top and a 2' x 3' flag at the bottom.

How Long Should a Flag Last?

There is no definite answer to this question. How long the flag lasts will depend on:
  • The Weather
  • Its Location
  • Airborne Contamination
  • How Often You Fly Your Flag

There is NO WARRANTY on flags.

Remember, your flag is a piece of cloth that works very, very hard. Throughout its lifetime your flag shakes, trembles, drapes, snaps, chafes, bakes, freezes, ripples, flutters, furls, twists, flaps, strains, flies, unfurls, and hangs!
A flag that flies continuously usually needs to be replaced every two to three months.
