 Flagpole Lighting Guide

Proudly Fly the American Flag 24 Hours a Day!

U.S. Flag code states that it is the universal custom to display the American flag only from sunrise to sunset on buildings and on stationary flagstaffs in the open. However, when a patriotic effect is desired, the American flag may be displayed twenty-four hours a day if properly illuminated during the hours of darkness.


  • Lighting effects can vary, and are dependant on both the viewer and the positioning of light fixtures.



  • Using multiple lighting fixtures will ensure that the flag is illuminated regardless of wind direction and viewer visibility.



  • Fixtures should be setback from the pole one-third to one-half the length of the flag. Other setbacks will produce different results as well as tilting or aiming the lighting fixtures toward the flag can also increase light levels.



  • In some applications where lighting is abundant, a stronger wattage lamp may be required.



  • Setbacks are also dependant on type of lighting fixture(s) and wattage.



  • Floodlights should be used to illuminate flags at heights of 50 feet or more.



  • Following are suggested lighting kits of a single pole.
