The purpose of a flagpole is to create an enduring symbol that is different from other objects (like a street sign or house). This symbolism enables the flag to be seen from far distances and is even visible in bad weather or at night. Taken Outside
banners and flags
A flagpole is a tall pole which displays a country’s flag. Flagpoles are used to display banners and flags, by their nature, have been used since ancient times. In the age of technology, it is more useful than ever to find ways of displaying and viewing the right information in the right place at the right time. A flagpole basket is attached to the top of the pole or banner pole and carries the flags that are flown on it. It can be attached to either wood or metal poles with different types of brackets that have different methods for attaching themselves at different heights on either type of poles. A flagpole arm is a part of a pole that connects the base with the top section of the pole where the flag flies from.
made from metal
A flagpole is either made from metal, rung, or wood. The metal flagpoles are the most commonly used pole for displaying national flags on a building’s facade . The metal flagpoles are also the ones that are highly visible and easily visible from any distance away as well as normally being bolder than smaller rungs in contrast to their size. Rung is one of the most widely used types of flagpoles, they are long and are usually taller than ordinary poles. They can easily be found on colleges, schools and even churches.
The newest type of flagpole to be considered is wood flag pole. These flagpoles are much more expensive to build than other types but it is also clear that they are also more durable and elegant in comparison to metal ones. The flagpole arm also keeps the pole from collapsing while the flag is flying, allowing it to last longer than a metal pole. Flagpole arms have been designed to be able to withstand winds in excess of 180 mph. There are many different types of flagpoles that use different flags on them. The most common type is a national flag but other types of flags can be found on flagpoles as well.
The final type of flagpole is called a flagpole house and this structure serves the purpose of holding a flag on display up in the air. This can be seen on top of government buildings and school’s as well as some private residences but this structure can even be found away from larger buildings and can even be found on private homes.
Flagpole brackets are normally found in pairs and serve the purpose of holding the flag in place until it is hoisted up the pole. Wood brackets do not require fasteners for them to attach themselves to the pole and thus allow for easy removal of the bracket without any damage to the pole or bracket itself.
