Pride, civics, citizenship education, celebrating and recognizing the strength and vitality of the United States democracy.
Any project can benefit from adding the strength, pride and color of a dynamic flagpole and flag installation. Certainly, all schools, post offices, fire stations, government buildings should without exception have at least one flagpole specified in their construction. The American flag, along with a state and city/county flag display represents an important and recognized symbol of our democratic heritage, values and traditions.
Flag raising ceremonies, accompanied by the singing of the national anthem, encourage students and citizens to appreciate the essential values of our democratic society and to learn more about the symbols that underpin them. These values include tolerance, respect for others, understanding our social diversity, pride in U.S. history and our achievements, the sacrifices or previous generations, optimism for the future and a strong commitment to the United States as a nation.
The size of the building and surrounding grounds are important factors in deciding the correct sized flagpole. Generally, for most residential settings, flagpoles, 20' to 25' in height are proper for one to two story family dwellings.
Corporate offices will select flagpoles 30' to 80' in height depending on the "Corporate Statement" that is wished to be made, size of property/building(s), and local restrictions.

Steel poles will usually require resurfacing in 2 to 6 years depending on the type of finish used and the area in which the pole is located. Stainless steel requires little or no maintenance to maintain its appearance.
Bronze poles may require some resurfacing depending on the overall effect desired. With time, bronze poles will darken.
Halyards and external fittings should be checked every three months for sign of wear and tear. If looked after when wear becomes apparent, the cost of replacements can be minimized.
