Suggested Pole Lengths
The size of the guard flag in relation to the pole size used is important to consider. This keeps your flags looking proportional on the field or floor. Band Shoppe offers several standard flag sizes to fit your performance. Larger color guard flags provide a visual impact or a "wow" factor. Smaller flags are great for maneuverability when performing spins and tosses. For custom flags, any size dimension can be utilized. All flag sizes are approximate and may slightly vary. Band Shoppe recommends 5' to 5-1/2' pole for flags with a smaller header, around 30" to 33". Most of our in stock color guard flags feature a 36" header and work well with a 6' to 6-1/2' pole. Larger flags in the 42" to 45" header range call for a longer 7' pole.
