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.
|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′|

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.
