Happy International Joke Day!  Here's a small dose of humor to lighten your mood today.

A common question we get is how big is a 3'x5' flag?"

The answer is simple….it is 3 feet tall by 5 feet wide or 36 inches tall by 60 inches wide or 91.44 cm by 152.4 cm. All kidding aside, we know it is hard to judge a 3’x5’ flag size. 

Below are 7 guidelines to help determine the size of a 3’x5’ flag.

1.    A yard stick is 3 feet long.
2.    If you are 5’ tall, spread your arms. That should closely resemble 5 feet. If you are 6’ tall, spread your arms, that should closely resemble 6 feet. 
3.    Most men's feet measure closely to 12” or one foot. Walk toe to heal three times. That is 3 feet. Walk toe to heal five times. That is five feet.
4.    The typical 2-and-a-half-year-old is 36” tall. 
5.    Look at your 60” television, corner to corner is 5 feet.
6.    Look down. Do you have welcome mat or rug at your entry? The rug at our entry is 3’ x 5’.
7.    3’x5’ flags are the most common US flag size seen flying on a mounted residential flagpole.
