  1. As a general rule, flag length should be 1/4 to 1/3 height of pole.
  2. When more than one flag is to be flown on a single pole, choose a larger pole.
  3. Top flag should be no larger than is recommended in chart.
  4. The second flag should be one size smaller than top flag.
  5. The proper capacity of a pole must be appropriate to your geographic region taking into consideration your regions' wind velocity:
