Flag Pole Illumination
The Flag Code is the US government guide for handling and display of the United State flag. It became law on December 22, 1942. Title 36, Chapter 10, Paragraph 174 of the code indicates, “It is the universal custom to display the flag only from sunrise to sunset on buildings and on stationary flagstaffs in the open. However, when a patriotic effect is desired, the flag may be displayed twenty-four hours a day if properly illuminated during the hours of darkness.” While there is no specific definition for “proper illumination” We can make the following recommendations for effective lighting of the flag.
How To Properly Illuminate The American Flag At Night
The key component of illuminating a flag at night is to never allow the flag to “Fall Into Darkness”. So the basic question of how many light fixtures do I need or how bright do they have to be is directly proportional to the height and size of the flag being flown. Still not an easy answer, but we can help you with this too. Here are the general rules of thumb:
15 Feet or less from ground = 1 light fixture
15-25 Feet from the ground = 2 light fixtures
25-30 Feet from the ground = 3 light fixtures
30-60 Feet from the ground = 3 high power light fixtures

Sandra, Just received the flag…it is FANTASTIC!!! Exactly what I was hoping for! Thank you so much. I will call you again if I need other work. Many blessings!
The flags we bought from you are still holding up, and we are very pleased with the quality. Our District Ranger is a stickler for having a nice-looking flag in front of the building (US and Forest Service) so having them last like this is a pleasure. Be assured I am keeping you in my rolodex for all future flag orders! (by btm517)
I know that you didn’t need to do this due to the funny sequence of events around shipping the flag set….but I sure appreciate your consideration and generosity. I’ll certainly remember it and will always speak highly of your company and customer service in the future. Also, just so you know, the person that I ordered the flag for was very moved by the thought and incredibly impressed by the product. Thanks again! by bob2135224 at Citysearch
