Thanks for sharing Randy. Cool how the top section rotates to accommodate for wind direction maintaining a straight flag. Genius

I assumed that some of the flags that are used at various ceremonies that are carried horizontally and are the size of football fields are larger, but they are not free flying.

Quite extreme engineering for a flag pole. I wonder how much it cost? I may have missed that if it was mentioned.

When you drive by, it, the flag actually looks small compared to the size of the flag pole. I can't get pictures to post or I would upload them.

It just feels extremely WRONG for not having ever heard a single thing about this before you posted Randy. I don't even know what the heck to say other than that.

This is awesome. I watched the video, which was awesome too. Then google mapped it. I think it needs a normal "car lot" sized pole next to it for comparison.

They have not and will not say.

I work for these fine folks....

this flag is a big part of their advertising, but more importantly, their corporate culture.

I dated the daughter of the guy who built the flag pole in this video way back in high school and college. While I dated her he built the two previous largest flag poles in the world in two neighboring countries somewhere in the Middle East, and made a truckload of money doing it. I would’ve never thought of flagpoles being a lucrative business, but I’d pretty much guarantee this thing was a multi-million dollar project.
