Flagpole and Pennant Size
An old rule suggests that the flagpole should be one-third taller than the building. In modern times, this translates to the flagpole being 3-4 meters taller than the structure.
Position the flagpole against a calm background for optimal display.
The length of the flag should be one-quarter of the flagpole's height!
