The Event Flagpole is an excellent all round way of displaying a large flag in a public location that is totally free standing and suitable for any ground type.
The product comprises a 5m Telescopic Pole which extends in 4 sections. A two piece water-fillable base and a set of stays. The pole has a 1m wide rotating arm at the top.
When packed the pole reduces down to 1.5m in length making it easy to carry within a vehicle, the water-fillable base weighs 80kg when full but only approximately 5 kgs when empty so easy to lift, it splits into two for ease of transport. The 80kg base would support the flagpole alone, however as an additional safety feature the pole includes 4 stay wires for additional security.
The Event Flagpole is only suitable for flying portrait orientation flags. They should be 1m wide and can be any height up to a recommended maximum of 3 meters. Flags are attached by eyelets with a series of clips which are included with the pole.
A set of carry bags for the pole and base are available separately to keep everything together when in storage.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I Need Planning Permission Before Installing a Flagpole?
To install a flagpole permanently, you will need planning permission from your local council.
Under the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, flags come with the definition of an ‘advertisement’, and their display is controlled by the Town and Country Planning (Control of Advertisements) Regulations 1992.
However, under Schedule 2 of the regulations, the national flag of any country, including the Union Flag, is exempt from advertisement control provided ‘Each flag is flown from a single vertical pole and neither the flag nor the displays any advertisement additional to the design of the flag’.
Our experience is that in general planning permission is straightforward to obtain, particularly if there are other poles in the area which form a precedent. Our flagpole team can help you with this and provide all the information you will need for your application.
Internal or External halyard?
You can choose from either an external or internal halyards on a flagpole. The internal halyards are vandal proof and also aid with noise reduction. With the rope rigged on the inside of the flagpole, it gives the advantage of added security, durability, and does not interrupt the flowing line.
Do I need a rotating arm?
A rotating arm is used typically for portrait orientation flags. It is a light metal arm at the top of the flagpole which holds the flag out even when there is no wind.
