Flag poles are made of various heights, and they are made the height that they are based on the type of purpose that they are going to serve. Some flag poles are used to display flags outside of a business and they need to be tall because the flags that are going to be used on them are large and look best when displayed on tall poles. There are other flag poles that are used on a home and mounted near the door. These flag poles are made to be short and they are made to display smaller flags.
Most flag poles are made out of an aluminum material. This is a material that does not rust when rain falls on the poles and that stays in good shape even after it has been in the outdoors for a long time. Sometimes the aluminum is used in its natural state and the flag pole has a greyish look to it, and other times the aluminum is painted to help the flag pole be a color that the one purchasing it wants it to be. Aluminum is a material that is lightweight and that can be strong enough to hold up a flag without being so strong that it is difficult to get it set up.
Fiberglass is a material that is sometimes used to create flag poles, and steel is another material that some use. These are both heavier materials than aluminum, but they each serve a purpose. Those who are looking to put up flags in their residential or commercial yard should know about all of the types of poles that are available for flags and the reasons that those poles are crafted out of different materials. Sometimes a person will find their flags set up with poles already and sometimes they need to purchase the two things separately.
