Flag Sizing Chart


When flying 2 flags on a single flagpole you want to make sure not to "over flag" or "have too much flag". Too much flag on a single pole can cause undue stress on the flagpole in bad weather and it will not look good.

Examples of proper sizing:

  • 20' Flagpole-Minimum Top flag 3'x5', Bottom (2nd flag) 2'x3'
    • 20' Flagpole Maximum Top flag 4'x6', Bottom (2nd flag) 3'x5'
  • 40' Flagpole-Minimum Top flag 6'x10', Bottom (2nd flag) 5'x8'
    • 40' Flagpole Maximum Top flag 8'x12', Bottom (2nd flag) 6'x10'

Keep in mind that there are certain variable that may change the size of flags that you  can fly on your flagpole. Some of these variables include the diameter of your flagpole, the wall thickness of your flagpole, material the flag is made of (Polyester or nylon) and don't forget the wind speed where the flagpole is located. If you're not sure of the wind speed where you live.
