Flags are nice ornaments for homes, churches, gardens, and business establishments. There is something unique about flags as ornaments. No other decorations can give off the mood that is given off by a flag flying energetically in the air. It enlivens a boring scenery. It contrasts well with serene views.

 

Installing a flag is easy if you know what it takes to complete the project. You need to have all the materials and tools before you start with the project. You need a flagpole kit that contains the pole and all the other flag accessories like halyards and pulleys. The kit usually has all the information and instruction for its assembly.

 

The first step installing the flag building the foundation. You need to dig a hole with dimensions of instructed in the flag kit. The hole is normally about 50 centimeters wide and 90 centimeters deep. Taller flagpoles may require wider and deeper holes. A pipe is placed in the center of the hole. The pipe is where the flagpole will be inserted. Once the pipe is centered, cement is poured into the hole. The cement is allowed to set overnight.

 

While waiting for the cement to set, the flagpole is assembled following the instructions from the flag company. The flag and other accessories like pulleys and halyard are installed. Some other accessories like a ball are installed on the top end of the flagpole.
Once the cement has dried, the pole can be inserted into the pipe. This keeps the flagpole in place. The entire project is very straightforward but requires some effort.
