Flag Sizes

Generally a 3' x 5' flag is ideal for display outside of your home. Some prefer a slightly smaller flag such as a 2' x 3'.

Flags

The appropriate size flag for display outdoors is determined by the type of flagpole, the length of the flagpole, and the number of flags being flown simultaneously on that pole. When flying multiple flags on the same flagpole, the lower flag(s) should generally be one size smaller than the main/upper flag.

Warning: Flags of different sizes are designed to be flown from different poles. Suggested flag sizes on this site do not represent a warranty that the flag size shown may be safely flown in all wind speeds and/or locations. Personal injury, flagpole damage, or property damage can occur when flying oversized flag(s) or flying flag(s) in higher winds than is recommended by your flag pole manufacturer.
