Appropriate Flag Size

In order to assure the attractiveness of the National Flag, the appropriate size in proportion to the pole should be taken into consideration. The length of the flag should be approximately 1/4 of the height of the flagpole. (20’ pole = 3’ x 5’ flag; 25’ pole = 4’ x 6’ flag; 40’ pole = 6’ x 10’  or 8' X 12' flag) A second flag flown under the U.S. Flag should be one size smaller than the U.S. Flag.

Note: If you have a 25' pole, you could fly a 4' X 6' US flag on top with another 3' X 5' flag under it.
