HOW TO CHOOSE THE FLAG TO THE HEIGHT OF THE MAST?
The selection of the appropriate size of the flag for the mast guarantees that it will look aesthetically and that the mast will serve for a very long time. We have a wide range of flagpoles in our offer, so choosing the right flagpole and flag should not be a big problem. The selection is so wide that we are able to choose the right flagpole and flag for every customer’s need.
Types of flagpoles
Our flagpoles are made of aluminum or composite. Aluminium flagpoles are sectional flagpoles, the consist of two or three aluminum tubes. The tubes are made of high quality aluminium of Polish production, the surface is protected with technical anode in natural color. Composite flagpoles are conical masts, their standard colour is white. Those flagpoles are entirely manufactured by us. Composite and aluminium flagpoles are available in three versions: the simplest version Standard flagpole – with a rope outside, intended mainly for national flags, version Super flagpole with the rope hidden inside the flagpole – perfect solution for national flags but also for advertising flags. Flagpole Superwindtracker is a typical advertising mast, it has an arm for the flag, thanks to that the flag is constantly displayed. This flagpole has another advantage – the horizontal arm is hoistable, thanks to this solution the flagpole can be easily converted to the version Standard in order to display the national flag on it.
Which flag is suitable for the each type of mast?
Depending on the selected type of flagpole, it is recommended to choose a different type of flag.
To the Standard and Super version, it is recommended to select the horizontal flag. It has been assumed that the length of the flag should measure ¼ of the height of the flagpole. It is also worth remembering that when hanging the national flag, it is important to maintain the aspect ratio of the sides of 5:8.
When buying a flagpole in the Super or Superwindtracker version, intended for an advertising flag, there are no top-down regulations that would regulate the dimensions of the flags. It is assumed that the flag is less than 1/3 of the flagpole height and no more than 150 cm wide. The width limitation results from the length of the windtracker arm, which is designed for this dimension. If a flag with a smaller width is selected, it is possible to fit the arm length to it.
What are the recommended sizes of the flag for each flagpole height?
When buying a flagpole, it is worth getting acquainted with the catalog card and warranty card, these documents indicate the dimensions of the flags recommended for particular types and heights of masts and information about the wind speed, when it is recommended to lower the flag. For sectional aluminum flagpoles with a height of 6 to 8 m, it is recommended to use a flag with a maximum size of 4.2 m2, for flagpoles from 9 to 12 m, this dimension is as much as 6 m2 of advertising space. For composite masts, the dimension for high masts is even greater, masts 10 to 12m can have a flag with an area of up to 7.5 m2!
About what you should remember when hanging your national flag?
It might seem that placing a national flag on a flagpole is no different from displaying an advertising flag. However, there are legal provisions that clearly define how the flag in the national colours should be treated. Above all, care should be taken to display such a flag in a dignified manner, it should not be dirty, crumpled or frayed. The national flag always has priority over other flags when hoisted onto the flagpoles, and it is also lowered last. It was assumed that in bad weather or on rainy days the flag should be removed so that it would not be damaged by strong winds or rains. It should also not contain any inscriptions or drawings.
When deciding to buy a flagpole, it is worth considering its purpose and choosing a product that will meet our requirements. In case of problems, we can help you choose the right flagpole, flag size and help in developing the perfect advertising flag design.
