Designing Your Flagpole – Flagpole Height
The next consideration in choosing your flagpole design is to determine the mounting height. This can be specified solely on the required aesthetics of the particular job, or can be determined by the size of the flag wished to be flown.
The National Association of Architectural Metal Manufacturers (NAAMM) publishes the following criteria for determining the maximum flag size for each flagpole height.
Extreme care must be exercised when installing flagpoles near overhead power lines or when digging in the vicinity of buried utilities.
During installation, extreme care should be taken to insure that all components are securely attached.
