Flag Installation

There are a few ways you can install your flag onto a pole, most of which depends on how you're going to use it. If you're using it for a rodeo or parade, the materials and tools you need will be different than if you're installing it on a commercial flagpole. At the Custom Windsock Co, we finish our flags either with grommets or a 2" sleeve that is closed on top.

Custom Rodeo Flags are best Finished with Sleeves

Sleeved flags are generally used for parades and rodeos because

  • They offer a quick, tool-free installation 
  • Any generic pole or dowel can be used (max 1" diameter)
  • The flag is not being exposed to the elements for a long period of time, no need for clips or reinforcements are needed

Custom Flags for Outdoor Poles are best Finished with Grommets

If you plan to use your flag outdoors for long periods of time, it is best to have your flag finished with grommets as it offers a stronger connection onto your pole.
