We have been very busy here at Flag-Works in downtown Concord, New Hampshire.
There have been a few holidays so far this year, that are important to many Americans. One of them was Flag Day, which was on June 14th. . We would like to thank the many patrons who have brought in their old and worn out flags. Flag-Works donates these flags to some of our local Boy Scout troops, and local American Legions. In this way, the flags can be put to rest in flag ceremonies that are usually held on this holiday.
Another important holiday for many out there is Father’s Day, celebrated only a few days after Flag Day. We have had many customers purchase a variety of aluminum flagpoles and, fiberglass flagpoles, in all sizes as they make great gifts for Dad. If you need a new flagpole or always wanted one, give us a call, we still have many in stock and would love to help you.
It’s time for all of us to celebrate our independence with Fourth of July decorations, flags and banners. There is still plenty of time to purchase a new American flag and flagpole for your yard. So come on by, or click a link and get everything you need for the upcoming Fourth of July.
Again we would like to thank all of our past, current, and future customers who celebrate their independence by flying flags from us, here at Flag-Works. Remember all flags purchased online ship for free. Fly your flags with pride and have a great summer.

When you purchase a flagpole to fly the American flag you should consider the installation as a landscaping project. First take a look at your yard and home in combination with garage and driveway, the big picture.
Now ask the question, where should I put the flagpole? Remember balance! Different height flagpoles will look better at different distances from the home. Some homes lend their features to the right or left of the home, some right in front, with others in front of the breeze way. All in all this is you first and main consideration. Please consider the first and second rule when determining a location.
First rule: Flagpole should not put the flag above the roof line. Certainly a 35′ flagpole in front of a small ranch will not look as good as a 35′ flagpole just off the side of the same house creating its own display with maybe a garden around the flagpole. Second rule: Keep the flagpole away from obstructions, ie tree branches, gutters etc. With this rule remember trees grow. After flagpole installation remember to dress up the base of the flagpole with your choice of vegetation from landscaping blocks, flowers to bushes. Let your imagination go! For all your flag and flagpole needs visit Flag-Works over America

What better way to fly a new American flag than on your new in-ground fiberglass flagpole. Our fiberglass flagpoles are not only functional, but will add value and beauty to your home or business. All of our fiberglass flagpoles are molded in one piece using the beautiful Greek Entasis taper design, the classical shape of a candle. The available options for these poles, either hinged base or ground sleeve, internal or external halyard, make this the ideal pole for any situation. Flag-Works flagpoles have a maintenance-free gel-coat finish that will keep these poles from ever chipping, cracking, pitting, corroding, or rusting which makes this pole impervious to all weather conditions.
Ground Sleeve Versions are available in 20, 25, 30 & 35 ft lengths and are lightweight and easy to install. These poles are strong and can withstand up to 120 mph winds, unflagged. The flagpoles come with all necessary hardware: halyard rope, revolving truck (allows the flag to fly freely, without constant wrapping around the pole), finial, snap hooks, cleat, flash collar and ground sleeve.
Hinged Base Version are available in 20, 25, 30, 33, 35, 40, 50 & 60 ft lengths. They are available in both internal & external halyards options. A hinged base allows the pole to tilt down for easy installation & future rope replacement. The hinged base poles come with all the necessary hardware: halyard rope, installation kit (hinged base, hardware & steel anchoring rods), revolving truck, cleat, snap hooks, finial and flash collar.

No more walking through slippery snow and ice to raise and lower your flag. The Super Brite Solar light has 4 led’s for superior illumination of your American flag. The light can be purchased as a flagpole light for on the pole, staked in the ground or mounted to a building or sign frame. Check out all of your solar light options from Flag-Works over America.
*According to the United States Code, Title 4, Chapter 1 – The Flag
(a.) It is the universal custom to display the flag only from sunrise to sunset on buildings and on stationary flagstaffs in the open. However, when a patriotic effect is desired, the flag may be displayed twenty-four hours a day if properly illuminated during the hours of darkness.

I would like to outline a fitness regime that works with the American flag.
Low level workout consists of looking up a website on the internet, www.flag-works.com. Then purchasing a flag and spinning pole that will attach to the side of your house. OK, now rest for a couple of days until the American flag and flagpole arrive. The next step is to open your package, install the flag bracket using a screwdriver, (lower level use a power drill) and hang up your flag. Now rest, your work out is done. Enjoy your flag!
Upper low level workout, Drive to Flag-Works over America buy an American flag set, drive home and install your flagpole as in the low level work out. Enjoy your flag!
Low Moderate workout consists of looking up a website on the internet, www.flag-works.com, purchasing a 20 flagpole Commander set for the front yard. When the flagpole comes in dig a small hole. Mix and pour cement into the hole to install your ground sleeve. While the cement dries, rest. The next day put your flagpole together and install it into the ground sleeve. Then take out your flag and attach it to your rope and raise your brand new 3×5 American flag. Enjoy your flag!
Moderate workout consists of all of the above and the addition of raising the flag every morning and lowering and folding your American flag every evening. When you feel you reached your exercise goal with this work out go to Flag-Works over America and order a Liberty light for your flagpole. The light will light your flag at night eliminating the need to raise and lower your flag.
The all American workout, This workout consists of driving to Flag-Works over America, buying a 25 fiberglass flagpole and a 5×8 American flag. Assisting the owner in attaching the flagpole to the roof of your car and taking the flagpole home. Once home you dig a 2.5 foot deep hole by 15″ to 24″ wide (if you have not done any of the previous workouts please rest) Now mix from 4-6 bags of cement and install your ground sleeve. Rest and let the cement dry overnight. The next day install your flagpole in the sleeve and raise your flag. Enjoy your flag.
The all American maximum flagpole workout. This workout consists of all the steps above and the addition of raising the flag every morning and lowering and folding your American flag every evening. When you feel you reached your exercise goal with this work out go to Flag-Works over America, order online, a Liberty light for your flagpole.

In summary: For a lot of you out there, the above workouts will never feel like a workout, because of the pride you will exalt in having your very own American flag flying over your home. For others it may be the beginning of a long healthy, and fit life.

There have been many updates in the flag industry, but one stands out.
For as long as flags have been flying on house mounted flagpoles, they have gotten wrapped around the pole. This is called being “furled.” Many items try to negate this unsightely display of the American flag: the pole sleeve flag, the unwrapper tube and the neverfurl. They all accomplished the job of keeping the flag unfurled, but none has succeded as easily as the spinning pole has. It’s simple. Attach the flag and let it fly free. The spinning pole has made the un-wrapper tube and the never-furl obsolete.
What makes it so simple? The pole is actually two pieces of aluminum tube that screw together.
One piece has ball bearings in it allowing the top tube to spin. This spinning keeps the flag from wrapping. Simple. The Spinning pole video shows how a flag just spins free. (I don’t know how to rotate the video)

What size flagpole should I install at my home?
It depends, most residential flagpoles are between 20′ and 30′ and made of either aluminum or fiberglass. The height of the home and the location helps in determining the right size. When the flagpole will be located near the home be sure the flag won’t fly too far above the roof, otherwise the flagpole isn’t really seen as a part of the landscape. If you took a picture of your home from the driveway entrance, the complete pole and flag should be seen in the photograph. When a flagpole is installed in it’s own area such as a field or garden, any height goes. The decision is usually determined by your pocketbook and how large of a statement you’d like to make. A 40′ white fiberglass flagpole with a 10′x15′ American flag, surrounded by colorful flowers makes a beautiful display and says a lot.
