Determine the Correct Flag Size for Your Flagpole Height


How to Determine Flag Size


Although there is no official Flag Code for determining the correct flag size for your flagpole height, for aesthetic reasons, it is important to choose the a flag that is proportionate. The rule of thumb is that the length of the flag should be one-fourth or one-third the height of the flagpole. Traditionally, most people follow the one-fourth rule when choosing a flag size for their flagpole.

Tips


If you are displaying two flags on a flagpole, choose a size smaller than the recommended flag size for your flagpole height. For example, if you should display a 4' x 6' flag on your flagpole, fly two 3' x 5' flags instead. If you would like the higher flag to be larger, use a 3' x 5' flag on top and a 2' x 3' flag at the bottom.
