The types of flags
When it comes to any flag, they come in many shapes and sizes. It is important that you get one that suits the purpose. Here is what to take into account when deciding.
If you are in the military, there will be many places a flag will be required. It may be at the main entrance where you would see the country and military regiments flag. There also may be the particular division’s emblem flags. The main ones could be bigger in size while others can be a little smaller. You should ensure that the one you purchase can be seen clearly but that it does not block the view of the building or location.
These are used on many occasions. From wedding to funerals from happy occasions to sad ones. Generally, the sad circumstances will see a flag flying at half mast. If the purpose is to cover a coffin, you need a suitable one that can be folded easily to b handed over to the family of the deceased. If you want one for a parade, then it cannot be too big because it will have to be carried by someone.
Flagpoles come in various sizes, and you will find ones made of aluminum and fiberglass. Many also come in sections, so they are easy to store and carry about. You will also need string or rope and a mechanism to raise and lower the flag if it is a big one.
