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.

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


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.
