Angled wall mounted flagpoles are a fantastic, eye-catching option for your home, business or public building. As the name suggests, the wall mounted flagpole can be mounted to the wall, roof or on any building corner. This is particularly handy when floor space is limited, often being seen outside hotels. Buying a wall mounted flagpole can seem like a daunting task, but we have compiled five easy questions for you to answer to get you started.

What type and size of pole do you want?

There are two types of angled wall mounted flagpoles available to purchase from Harrison Flagpoles. They are:

1. Standard aluminium – The standard wall mounted pole is made from aluminium and is available in 1.5m or 2m lengths. The kit compromises of a 60mm straight pole with a rope and cleat, topped with a white finial. The angled galvanised steel bracket is bonded to the pole ready for easy installation.

2. Executive glassfibre – The executive wall pole is made in the UK from glassfibre. It is available in 2m, 3m and 4m lengths as standard, or in 5m and 6m lengths on request. It is tapered in appearance to give a sleeker look and the gold onion finial adds a prestigious touch to your wall, roof of building corner.

The 2m-5m poles are 100mm at the base and taper to 65mm at the top. The 6m pole is 120mm at the base and tapers to 65mm at the top.

All of our executive wall poles are heavy duty as standard, but extra heavy duty and ultra-heavy-duty options are available for exposed or coastal locations. Please note that poles over 4m will require a stay to act as additional support.

The executive angled wall mounted pole comes complete with a cup and supporting galvanised steel bracket, gold onion finial and rope and cleat system.

What angle do you want your wall mounted flagpole to be?

We offer three angled options depending on your needs: an angled bracket of 30°, 45° or 60°. This bracket is installed onto the wall which houses the flagpole (as images above illustrate). The angle is measured from the vertical wall, as shown in the below diagram. Our most popular angled pole is 45°.

Which flag do you want to fly?

We offer a wide range of flags for your angled wall mounted pole, from National Flags to custom designs with your logo. Take a look at our range of flags here.

The flags are available single or double sided in a choice of 3 options:

  • Standard: the knitted polyester material is lightweight and flies well in wind.
  • Environmentally Friendly: our Harrison Eco™ flag is an innovative material made from recycled plastic items such as PET bottles. It has the same durability, strength and versatility of knitted polyester, but it’s better for the environment.
  • Handsewn: created with woven polyester in the UK by our highly skilled team of seamstresses, these flags add an extra touch of quality to your flagpole.

You can also choose between an angled or landscape flag, with the difference between the two shown below:

Angled head flags give a sharp and elegant appearance, but some designs like National Flags require a plain header. Landscape flags can be a more cost-effective solution whilst still leaving a striking impression.


Does the flag have to be a certain size on an angled wall mounted flagpole?

Recommended flag sizes depend upon the size of your pole, the angle from the wall and if you prefer an angled or landscape shape. Here’s what we suggest:

  • 45° angle poles

  • 30° angle poles

  • 60° angle poles

What additional extras do you want to add?

We recommend that a lazy line is added to all angled wall poles to prevent the flag from getting wrapped around the pole in windy conditions. The lazy line kit consists of an eye hook which is fitted to the wall and is connected to the flag via an eyelet and piece of halyard. It can also be combined with an anti furl bar within the flag for extra protection. An anti furl bar is a piece of wooden dowel that fits down the wall side of an angled flag:
