Determining Flag Size

The length of the flag should be at least 1⁄4 the height of the pole. For example, a 40’ pole requires a 6’x10’ flag or larger. This guideline applies to poles 20’ and larger. Most residential flags are 3’x5’ or 4’x6’. Most small industrial and commercial buildings use either a 5’x8’ or a 6’x10’ flag. Major industrial, municipal and government buildings require 8’x12’ and larger. However, the size of the pole is the determining factor.
