A flag pole mount is the holder the flag can be attached to on the side of your house, garage or porch, so that you can proudly display your flag on holidays or any day you would like.
As long as you donít leave it out at night without having a light shining on it or when there is a storm.
Usually the flag is flying between dawn and dusk. Flag etiquette says that if the flag is flying after dark it should be illuminated. It can be a pole finial that has a light source and shines down on the flag.
If you want to do it from below, you can clip a light to the pole below the flag. However with this method sometimes the light doesnít emphasize the flag. It is better to measure half the height of the pole away from the base. With a twenty foot pole install the light at a point ten feet away.
After sunset, go out and maneuver the light until it is on the flag. You may want to mount the flag on the side of the house or garage depending on how far away the pole is from the place you want to install the light.
You can buy a wall mount bracket for your flag at many home improvement stores and even one stop shopping centers that sell groceries as well as tires.
You can get flag pole mounts designed for a flag on a horizontal surface such as a desk or the roof of your porch. This is great if you donít have room in your yard to erect a flag pole.
You can get kits to mount a flag on your bicycle, RV, motorcycle, boat and car. Donít forget the flags for your tailgating party, there are special flagpole mounts for those also.
