There are several pieces that go into a functional flag pole. The pole itself which can come in one section for a pole up to 25 feet, poles at 30-35 feet have one or two and finally a flag pole of 40 to 45 feet comes in three pieces.
Flags of these sizes need to be ground set. Which entails digging a hole and pouring cement.
The truck assembly houses the pulley system used by the halyard to raise and lower the flag.
Clamps are used to attach a flag with grommets (holes) to the pole. Clips attach the halyard to the flag pole and flag snaps attach the flag to the pole.
You can buy a no furl kit, which is a system that allows the pole to rotate so that the flag doesn’t twist itself around the pole.
Other parts are floor stands for courtrooms, classrooms, sometimes churches, governmental offices, theaters and forums use this type of flag display also. You can also purchase a parade flag holders and event the white gloves that are usually worn by flag bearers. You can also find carry cases for transporting flags and poles.
Some poles use a pulley system to raise and lower the flag. You may want to display your flag 24 hours a day. However flag etiquette demands that if the flag will be flown after sunset, it should be illuminated either from light in the finial (ornament) or one on the ground and pointed at the flag.
When you purchase your flag pole, ask if they sell the special tools you will need and if needed flag pole parts. If your flag is in the 20-30 foot range you may want to hire someone to dig your hole, pour the concrete and set up the pole for you.
