Flag Pole Eagle - Decorate Your Flag Pole with an Eagle
Almost every flag pole you see has a finial and many of them are eagles – a powerful symbol of the United States.
They are available for indoor flag poles such as in a classroom or those outside in front of your home.
At the top of most flag poles there is an ornament called a finial, commonly a gold orb. Many flag poles have an eagle perched atop the ball.
The eagles come in a variety of sizes and finishes. Some are gold or silver and some are made in natural colors and look almost real.
Most look like the eagle has just landed or has spotted prey. Before you purchase your eagle flag pole ornament, check to see if it has the 1/2in thread spindle as found in standard flag poles.
Often the eagle is pre fastened to an ornamental ball, which makes it less subject to breakage or damage.
Eagle ornaments are more likely to appear on ground set flag poles than on brackets. They are also often found in classrooms, courtrooms, meeting rooms where civic and patriotic associations meet.
We have seen them for sale for as low as $44.00 and as much as $689.00. The price depends on the material the eagle is made of and the size and quality of the workmanship.
When shopping for an eagle for your flag pole, make sure that it will fit your pole. Also look for one that is resistant to fading or the weather damage like rust.
