All-American Flagpole Series from All Star Flags

Friday, July 29th, 2011

All Star Flags is pleased to introduce the All-American Flagpole Series, a line of poles 100% Made in the U.S.A.  In an effort to capitalize on the quality and craftsmanship of American manufacturing expertise, the All-American Flagpole Series was created to deliver superior in-ground and house-mounted flagpoles to the public.

18- and 28-gauge steel poles are powder coated with electrostatically charged paint to create a coating that resists cracking, peeling, and corrosion.  The 3-inch ball on the top of each pole is made of solid hardwood, naturally tougher than the plastic ones found on many other flag sets.  And the 2-position bracket used in the house-mounted pole is made from recycled high-density polyethylene, tested to be 25% more durable than the nylon brackets commonly used in the market.  All of these elements combine to form a stronger, greener, American-made product available now at All Star Flags!
