Flags and Banners…

Flags and banners can be acquired to represent just about any country in the world, or even custom made to depict any logo, symbol or message. The use of quality modern materials to guard against wind ripping and sun fading of colours makes them stand as long-lasting investments in pride and patriotism. The amount of sizes and dimensions as well as the near-limitless amount of colours available make it a simple task to acquire the flags and banners you desire.

Custom Flags…

Perhaps you’re company is playing host to a huge sale event and you require huge banners with your company’s logo on them; or maybe you need to represent a special group at a specific event that may at first thought seem difficult to get a flag or banner for… whether a Freemason or Shriners lodge outing, or perhaps even a Hiawatha Belt emblem banner to represent the Iroquois Nation of the Akwesasne territory and be brought into “Grand Entry” at the opening of an inter tribal powwow gathering event. Whatever the need, however mainstream or seemingly obscure, it can be met, and in a professional and timely manner.

Flagpoles…

Flagpoles can serve a variety of uses, but there are three main categories that they all can fit into; residential flagpoles, commercial flagpoles, and recreational flagpoles. Let’s take a quick look at all three…

Residential Flagpoles…

Residential flagpoles are those that home owners use, perhaps for flying the colours of their country, a banner of an organization they belong to, or for various other reasons. Perhaps a meteorology enthusiast will hang windsocks, anemometers or other devices for tracking the weather in pursuit of their hobby. They may be placed in the front yard, or perhaps in the back yard near the patio, or in the yard’s center. Another variety in this category, is the type which stand out from a wall mount, such as over a doorway, or the smaller version of the same, next to the front door of a home, by the mailbox and doorbell.

Commercial Flagpoles…

Commercial flagpoles are those which are used by some companies to fly banners with their logo, messages of coming events like sales, or product/service rates to be compared with those of others. Particularly tall commercial flagpoles often fly logo standards to be seen by drivers in their vehicles many roads away in order for the retail establishment to be easily located, making navigation by eye to the place of business a simple task.

Recreational Flagpoles…

Recreational flagpoles may be used as markers to make easily known the whereabouts of a certain event in a large public area such as a park, a beach or a playground. Such an event may be of a business recreational variety, could be involved with summer camps or scouting, or perhaps a large family reunion type event. Sometimes recreational events are team oriented, such as volleyball tournaments on a large beach, and recreational flagpoles may be used to mark such areas as well as team logos and such.

The Flag Poles Themselves…

The types of flag poles that are on the market today can be one piece, connecting pieces, or telescoping. They can be made of galvanized steel, high-impact PVC, aluminum, or even fiberglass. There are many types to fit any particular individual need.

Flagpole Installation…

Flagpole installation methods can vary from company to company, and the largest problems that can occur during this phase is that of having to deal with more than one different contractor. There is the checking for safe areas for digging, the digging itself, the pourings of concrete, and so on. However, this need not be the case. There are those who install state-of-the-art flagpole systems without needing to dig so much, and without needing to pour even a teaspoon of concrete. Such installation specialists use flagpole systems which employ fins or veins in the flag pole’s base, often in a corkscrew type of configuration, to achieve a concrete less installation that can stand as permanently as you like, and even be moved to another location with a minimum of fuss, should you ever change your mind and wish for it to be relocated elsewhere. This type of flagpole system, with it’s root base planted below the frost layer, can bear loads that are quite considerably heavy, even in what would otherwise be considered loose, or unstable groundings.

Flagpole Kits…

Flagpole kits are just what they sound like – do it yourself projects to install a simple, yet sturdy flagpole for flying any flag you like. Such kits can come in sections that you put together, for a flagpole of around 20 feet long or more, and can be left permanently, or be taken down just as easily as they are put up. There are also flagpole kits of the variety that protrude forth from a wall, such as the front face of a house, right by the front door. The poles for these may be made of wood, aluminum, fiberglass, acrylic or PVC.
