Flagpole owners can’t escape the elements or time. Sunlight and moisture often cause microscopic fiber deterioration. Wind not only tears at a flag but also makes it repeatedly thwap against the hard flagpole surface, which further breaks fibers. Of course, wind also often causes a flag to become tangled around its pole.
How can you reduce these problems?
- Attach one end of a “non-tangle” rod to the flag mounting hardware at the pole and the other end via a clip to the bottom of the flag.
- Choose a flag that’s made of a durable, weather-resistant, heavy material that both reduces fiber deterioration and makes it harder for the wind to move the flag in a wraparound fashion.
- Install your flagpole near a windbreak that limits the flag’s exposure to the wind from at least one side, such as a hill, line of trees, tall wall or outbuilding.
- Invest in a spinning flag mounting kit or a half- or full-spin flagpole that allows the flag to rotate in any direction with ease.
