What Size Flag Should I Fly?

When it comes to flag sizes, there are standard sizes, but also so many choices. So which size flag should I fly? There are a few variables to make this decision. 

Do you currently have flags flying? 

If you currently have flags on your pole, Often times the size of the flag on the header material. If it is faded or unreadable, simply measure the flag. When referencing a flag size, the height of the flag (the shorter side) is listed first, followed by the length (the longer side). If you give us the measurements we can help determine what size that flag you are flying on the flagpole.. 

What size flagpole do you have? 

Unless you are the person who bought the flagpole, and have a record of what size the pole is, there is a chance you have no idea what size your flagpole is. That is okay, we can try to figure it out together. The size of the flagpole helps determine what size flag is recommended for your pole. Here is a little breakdown. 

Mounted Flagpoles, typically attached to the side of a house or business: 

5’: 2’x3’ or 2.5’x4’

6’: 2.5’x4’ or 3’x5’

8’: 4’x6’

In-Ground Flagpoles

15’-19’: 3’x5’

20’: 3’x5’ or 4’x6’

25’: 4’x6’ or 5’x8’

30’: 5’x8’ 

35’: 6’x10’

40’ & 45’: 8’x12’ 

50’: 10’x15’

60’: 12’x18’

70’: 15’x25’

80’: 20’x30’ 

100’: 20’x38’

150’: 30’x50’

200’+: 30’x60’

Are you planning on flying more than one flag on a pole? 

If so, we would recommend downsizing the flags a little. If you keep the recommended size, and add another flag or two, there can be issues. The flags can be too close to the ground and the more flags on a pole can affect the integrity of the flagpole because of overload.  

We are always here to give guidance to help you make the best decision on what size flag should be flown. If you have any questions, feel free to call us at 303-431-1117 or send us an email at admin@customflagcompany.com
