American flag sizes

The height of your flagpole actually determines the size of the flag so it’s important that the flag and the flag pole to be in proportion. Those angled poles and standing poles that are found in offices and indoor displays can have a 3x5 flag or 4x6 flag. For a house mounted pole, your flag should be one foot shorter than the length of the pole. This is to prevent any chance of dragging against the ground or garden below it. The larger the flags, the larger the poles you have to purchase.

This is the chart where you can see flag pole height and corresponding flag size:

Flagpole Height (ft.)       Flag Size (ft.)
20                                          4 x 6
25                                           5 x 8
40                                           6 x 10
50                                           8 x 12
60                                         10 x 15
