Choosing the right size Flag & Common sizes of Flags and Poles

When choosing the right size flag, the traditional relationship of flag size to the height it flies is:

  • one yard of flag (horizontal dimension) to every 3m of pole
Flag Dimensions Pole Height
Yard Inches Metric mm Feet Metres
1 36 x 18 915 x 458
1.5 54 x 27 1370 x 685 15 4.5
2 72 x 36 1830 x 915 20 6
2.5 90 x 45 2280 x 1140 25 7.5
3 108 x 54 2740 x 1370 30 9
4 144 x 72 3660 x 1830 40 12
5 180 x 90 4560 x 2280 50 15
6 216 x 108 5480 x 2740 60 18
7 252 x 126 6400 x 3200 70 21
8 288 x 144 7320 x 3660 80 24

Note: The most common flag display is a flag 1830 x 915 (2 yard) on a 6m flagpole.

To “Make a statement” it is usual to choose a flag the next size up, but to go larger there is a risk of being ostentatious.

To go smaller, the flag will look disappointingly small when raised.

Flags of All Nations makes flags of any size and poles of any height.
