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!

Flag-Works has been on Main St. Concord NH since 1996.
We first called main street home at 204 South Main St. This location was a building that at one time housed a laundry mat. (view to the left in the picture) While at 204 S. Main we expanded next door into 202 S. Main St. which housed a florist. (the entrance with the American flag above)
In 2002, we moved into our present location at 6 North Main St., the far side of the first white awning on the right, which previously was home to Annie’s book store and a cleaners. We have two pictures of the 6 N. Main St. locations for your viewing pleasure. We hope you enjoy them any comments would be appreciated. We also have included a picture looking up Main Street from pleasant street present day. We will also add pictures of the coming construction (scheduled in Sept. 2013) and when main street is completed. For those who don’t know, Flag-Work’s is the building with the white awnings on the right.
In this newest picture taken today, Flag-Works is the building on the right with the blue awning. The old pictures are courtesy of Concord’s New Front door.

A finished Infantry guidon is displayed here. This is a double sided read correct guidon. The guidon is made to military specifications. After our customer orders a guidion and informs us to what company and other information is to be on the guidon we send them a proof. The proof (click link) FW INFANTRY01 that our customer receives prior to Flag-Works making their Infantry guidon. The proof shows both sides of the guidon, this guarantees that the guidon will look exactly as required which is letters and numbers read correct on both sides and the insignia is single reverse.
The size of a guidon is determined by Institute of Heraldry, Departartment of the Army, Base drawing for US Army and US Air force Guidons 5-1-4 Revised 12 November 2002. Description states: A guidon is a swallow-tailed unit marker, 20-inch hoist by a 27 3/4-inch fly, the swallow-tail end forked 10 inches. Fringe is not used on guidons. Following the above guidelines insures that a Flag-Works guidon is made to Military specification and to the customers needs. Please note that the Army regulations 840-10 and wikipedia states a guidon dimension is 20″ x 27″. They are both in error. The above information is straight from the Institute of Heraldry, today. A new revision will be coming out to correct the Army Regs. The schematic drawings that we use to make the guidons were never changed to 27″ and never will be. Be careful you can’t always believe what you read. Ha, now do you believe me? If you would like proof please leave a comment and I will send you a copy of the schematic for the guidons.

We have just added two more designs to our growing list of business open flags. I think these two designs will help round out our current collection.
These flags are 28″x 40″ and are printed on a durable poly-nylon blended fabric. They are fade resistant and colorfast. As always as new designs come available we will show case them here. Open flags are one of the most important promotions that a new or old business can successfully accomplish for very little money. The flag not only says that you are open but in moves in various ways to say, Look! Look at Me! Over here! We are Open! What other media can do that for under $30.00. Remember Flag-Works flags ship free. Check out our American flags they are the lowest on the internet.

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.

If you want to fly a 5′ x 8′ American flag there are a few things you must consider. First, what size pole would accommodate a flag that is 40 sq ft.?
This is a 25′ flagpole with 5×8 American flag flying. Use the guideline that the length of the flag should be from 1/4th to 1/3rd the height of the flagpole. (See flag size chart.) This would make the appropriate flagpole either a 25′ or a 30′ flagpole. OK, now if you are considering flying two flags on your 25′ flagpole you need to take in consideration that 40 sq ft is what is recommended. So if you want a second flag you should use a 4′ x 6′ and a 3′ x 5′ (24 sq ft + 15 sq ft = 39 sq ft) flag combination. This scenario removes the 5′ x 8′ American flag from the 25′ flagpole. So, if you want to fly two flags and retain the 5′ x 8′ American flag size you would need a 30′ flagpole. This pole allows for a 5′ x 8′ or a 6′ x 10′ American flag, or 60 sq ft. This would then allow for a 5′ x 8′ American flag and a 4′ x 6′ state flag, 40 sq ft X 24 sq ft = 64 sq ft. One more item to consider is the strength of you flagpole. If the pole is a new one piece aluminum flagpole or a one piece fiberglass flagpole then no worries, but if the pole is old, thin, or decaying you should consider flying smaller flags. With this knowledge choose how many flags you will be flying and your flagpole size, then get out and hoist some flags.

Big state flags are hard to find. Most flag company’s have state flags from 2 x 3′ to 6 x 10′ for sale. Here at Flag-Works we have all the state flags from 2 x 3′ up to 12 x 18′ in nylon (except Maryland, Georgia, Mississippi). We also have Ohio state flags in larger sizes 15 x 25′, and 20 x 30′. These nylon Ohio state flags and the polyester Ohio state flags are readily available for your big time needs. Of a matter of coarse, Texas state flags can also be made in in the sizes above and 20 x 38′, 30 x 50′ and 30 x 60′. Now that’s a big flag. Texas flag history is full of historic Texas flags. PS If you wanted an Ohio state flag that big I’m sure we can make a custom Ohio state flag for you. One more thought, we do have these flags in small sizes but that’s for another day.
